This is a single page document with an image at the top, a sentence of text in the middle, and two columns of text at the bottom. It is very very short, the whole thing is no more than a handful of sentences.

OCR in Abbyy, it should be able to convert it just fine, even with the two columns.

Subject: [Athen] Fixing a PDF

Hello, I have a PDF flyer that, when I read it, the lines are out of order. I believe it's two pages side-by-side and the screen reader is reading a line from the left, then aline from the right, then going back and forth. I'm unsure of how to fix this. I'm attaching the flyer so you can see what I mean, but I'm only asking for the best advice on how to fix it. We have Adobe Acrobat Pro and ABBYY. Thanks!
