How can I remove all images/drawings from a PDF file and leave text only in word?

Question:I have a PDF file that's an output from an OCR processor, this OCR processor recognizes the image, adds the text to the PDF but at the end places a low quality image instead of the original one (I have no idea why anyone would do that, but they do).
So, I would like to get this PDF, remove the image stream and leave the text alone, so that I could get it and import (using iText page importing feature) to a PDF I'm creating myself with the real image. Is there any solution on VeryPDF?
