It is fragmented type.

 

What happens if you select all with the Selection tool and copy the selection, take the Type tool, draw a new text box and then paste it into it?

Danni,

 

Failing any of the clever suggestions (present and possible future ones), you might consider software OCR (instead of using your own and start typing); or just laugh at the very thought.
