To make text in a .jpeg editable you need Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software such as ocrfeeder.

To install it, open a terminal window and run the following command:

sudo apt-get install ocrfeeder

Please bare in mind that OCR is not 100% accurate, you may have to correct errors, and the more formatting your document has, the harder it will be.

imagemagick can make PDFs from images. It's a great CLI tool
