    Using Mac OSX Voice Over feature in tagged PDF (Acrobat)

    Bart Van de Wiele Level 3

      Hi,

       

      Because the Acrobat Read Out Loud feature is not a real accessibilty option, I'd like to test my accessible PDF using the Mac OSX Voice Over feature. But I notice that the Voice Over does not pick up the ALT text in my PDF. After doing some Googlin' I learned that the Mac Voice Over option doesn's support ALT text.

       

      Now I need to have a way to test my tagged PDFs and verify the reading order of my PDF. I am aware of the Acrobat reading order options and all (looking at the structure), but I want to REALLY verify how this PDF will be read in.

       

      I'm looking for: a mac program or plugin that allows me to read the PDF out loud, including the ALT text to verify my reading order is correct.

       

       

      Does anyone have any tips?

       

      Cheers
