Can I create a PDF with searchable text that's editable in Acrobat Pro?

I would like to OCR a document and save it as a searchable PDF, and then send it to a colleague who is using Acrobat Pro so they can edit the searchable text and review/correct what was done in Abbyy FineReader. 

Currently when I save the PDF and they open it, they don't have the option to edit the searchable text unless they OCR it again in Acrobat. Is there a way to do this without having two copies of Abbyy FineReader?
