If you have access to Photoshop CS5 or newer, you might try one of the selecting tools to select the text and use Content Aware Fill and/or the Clone Stamp Tool to remove the text.

This works well for me: Select all (cmd+A) and cut (cmd+X) the image from its canvas (convert to png if asked).

You can toggle "Show Image Background" in "View" menu (⌥ alt+⌘ cmd+B). This will produce "chess" pattern instead of the clear color. Example (I've set white color around this rectangle to be transparent):

VoiceOver can only read PDFs that are actually text-encoded. If they are simply image files, it has nothing to "read." You can use Acrobat Pro or another PDF application like Abbyy FineReader or ReadIRIS with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to "read" the graphics and convert them to text. Then you can use VoiceOver to speak if for you. OCR isn't perfect, ...

There's a bug somewhere (maybe a PostScript bug related to Preview) in the Mac workflow when you Save as PDF. There is a rare occurrence where a line like that will occur, and the workaround is to repeat the Save as PDF command. The bug is rare, so you probably won't get a repeat the second time. I've encountered the bug a handful of times because I ...

Preview only works with PDF files and some image files (png, jpg, gif, tiff, bmp) so you won't be able to open a text file on Preview. To open your info.txt file from terminal you need to choose an application that can open text files, like TextEdit or any other text editor. You also could use open -e file, to open any file using TextEdit.

Try using the Terminal! Type: sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF test.pdf Where 5 is the degrees, FFFFFF is for white (the background) and test.pdf is your pdf. To more easily use this, try only typing sips -r 5 --padColor FFFFFF and then drag a file on the terminal. Edit: as user3439894 correctly points out this only works for single page pdf's and ...
