OCR with PDF’s with an image of text and handwriting that’s been OCR’ed

Hello there! I’m wondering how EN “reads” PDF’s that have

- an image of typed text 

and

- handwriting, that has been previously OCR’ed. 

I often use Nebo on the iPad this way: I will screenshot a book excerpt, and then write freeform notes around it. Nebo creates the underlying text for the handwriting, then one can export it, by PDF, or, I believe, into a PNG image. 
How would EN “read” the PDF? Would a PNG be better?

Hi.  If there's editable text in a PDF Evernote will not OCR it.  You could clip the PDF on its own,  then add your handwritten comments to a second note and re-clip the annotated PDF if you want a compromise.  Try a test PNG as well to see which (if any) works better.
