    Alt text from XMP Description loses important format

    Julien Hofberg Community Member

      Alt text from Word or .txt that is copied into PS & AI figures/graphics via XMP description loses spaces after paragraph. Screen readers require a space after a period to generate a pause. When this alt text comes into InDesign, the return is removed along with any space so that the screen reader reads

       

         . . . end of sentence.

      Beginning of sentence . . . 

       

      ". . . end of sentence dot beginning of sentence. . . "

       

      Typed alt text works properly.  Suggestions?
