I don't think this picture has adequate quality for OCR to work.

Try small area of the page scan it with high resolution and see if that helps

As well as namanpatel's excellent suggestion, you may want to look at the contrast setting on your scanner, then greater the contrast between the background and the text, the better chance the software has of achieving it's aim.
