Hello all. When using Acrobat 9 Pro, adding all text to a tag for text had the Read out Loud actually read the alternate text. However with Acrobat X Pro, adding alt text to a tag for text does not force the Read out Loud to read that alternate text.
Meaning if I add "Tiger Tigers School is closed October ninth" to the tag of the text displaying "- TTS is closed October 9th" results with Read out Loud to interpret and read it as "Text To Speech is closed October 9th".
Is this a bug?
Used your sentence "TTS is closed October 9th." in a Word file and output a tagged PDF via PDFMaker.
Added Alt Text for the tag that was the parent for the container holding the text string.
ROL with Acrobat 9 Pro and Acrobat X Pro spoke the entered Alt Text.
In short, could not duplicate what you've described.
Perhaps an Acrobat repair or processing any outstanding updates could resolve things.
Or a return to the structure tree may be in order. Look for what is amiss there.
Thanks for checking. Just odd that this happened. I did everything you did and that's where I ran into an issue. Going to recreate the PDF from the source word document and retest...maybe even create a new tag and test that as well.
