I have some JPEG files which contain text, but I want to edit some information on it. So I want to convert them in DOC format. How can I do this without downloading any software.

JPEG files contain raster images (pixel data). This includes text (i.e. text is not stored as text but as pixels).
This means that in order to convert them to text (or MS Word format) you need to use OCR software. There are many such online services, e.g. see http://www.onlineocr.net/ (first google hit).
