You mean the jpg files are images of text - eg from a scanner?
And you want to perform a kind of OCR function on them to convert
it to text, but in a Doc format (I assume you mean Microsoft Word .doc
and not any other proprietary format called .doc - there are several!)

Before we all start jumping in with ideas can you confirm that's what
you mean please?
