Alt-text in InDesign

I am creating a master file in InDesign which will ultimately be published as EPUB and Accessible PDF. 


I watched training videos and learned about the Adobe Bridge.  I entered all my Alt-Text in Bridge.


When I brought it into InDesign, I can see it in the XML-Description field in InDesign, but when I extract to EPUB or Accessible PDF, the Alt-Text is not carried through.  If I enter Alt-Text in InDesign, it does carry on through.


Is it something we are doing to the pictures in InDesign that is inhibiting the carry-through of the alt-text from Bridge?  If we use a Frame or resize the picture, does that interfere? 


Thank you much,
