I think that's actually the best you'll get. The problem you have
with OCR'd files is that they contain two characters for every
character they recognized:
One as bitmap, for displaying, one (invisible) box character for
selection, on top of the bitmap.

When flash selects a character it'll invert it. As the
invisible boxes are empty, you'll get solid yellow rectangles when
selecting text.

It's weird that your OCR solution puts the transparent box characters
below the bitmap, though.
