I tried to run scans and other methods but I don't know how to make it recognize the I textbox in the headers.

What part of the PDF is the "I" textbox. I just ran this through Acrobat Pro and it seemed to do everything that was text.

 

I'm using Acrobat Pro DC on a Mac.

@garyb  The OP is talking about the C  I headers. Acrobat is treating it as a column border or graphic object rather than the letter I. I am suspecting because it is a san-serif font and no surrounding text.  @smolkabbage  I would ask though, are your plans to make this accessible? If so, you will need to make this into a proper table to be compliant. OCR is just the first step. Alternatively you could add the letters I you need behind the image manually so you can build the table structure correctly. It is a fair bit of work for sure.

Sorry for the late reply. 

 

That's what I ended up doing. I added in the I over the text and used it as a replacement text.
