(Another shameless commercial plug)
I was playing around with the sample file mentioned, and one product was able to read it, Pagis Pro 3.0 by Scansoft.
In fact, they have a tool whereby you can hightlight a bunch of .tif files, and convert them in batch from Windows Explorer (right-click "Convert format..."). I tried this, and the .jpg file stored is about 5 times the size of the .tif file, but I believe that the JPEG quality was set a bit high. Maybe a batch program could rewrite the JPEG files with a lower Q factor.
