Default Recognizing Photo Caption as Text

I have a document that I scanned from a very old magazine article using Adobe Acrobat Standard 8.0 on my XP Pro SP2 machine.

Two of the pages are full-size color photos with captions overlaying the images. Where the caption is black text, the built-in OCR function of Acrobat Standard recognizes the text and makes the text searchable. Where the caption is white text, the OCR function does not see it and otherwise ignores it.

Where there is white text overlaying an image, how can I cause Acrobat Standard to recognize and process via OCR that white-on-color text?
