Help with a scanned pdf file

Hi everyone
This is my first post so please bear with me. I have tried to send a scanned pdf file to my kindle so it will read to me , I have done this both by wifi and usb cable, I have annoyed my IT department at work and they just look at me blankly. I have downloaded heaps of programs from the net and still no luck can any one help with this I have attached to pdf file, this is how my trainer has sent my course documents, but as you can see it is a scanned file so not so good to start with,
Thanks Jach

It's scanned at 200dpi, and not OCR'd, so there's nothing to read aloud--this is a collection of images.

I could do a quick OCR without detailed format & typo checking; it won't be perfect but it'll be readable. Could put it in PDF and Word; not sure I can get it to mobi/prc for the Kindle, but the Kindle program will do that.

DONE: very basic mostly auto-OCR'd PDF, similar Word doc.

There's lots of typos (OCRos?) in here because the original quality's not good, but I tried to keep the formatting correct--made sure the tables & lists were correctly together & lines were broken in the right spots.

I find this lack of respect for the copyright of Smallprint Australia Pty Ltd ... interesting.

I decided I'd take the risk that Smallpoint would attempt to extradite me for noncommercial copyright infringement.
