Hmmm ... I would be surprised if he is using a true "image" OCR
program. I suspect a mis-speak! :)

While I have no reason to transfer from FrameMaker to Word, I do use
a program from Nuance (formerly Scansoft) called "PDF Converter 3"
to bring in standard PDF files into Word. This works directly on the
PDF file, not an image.

And, PDF Converter 3 does provide pretty darn good results for this
conversion process.
