    Form field tool tips & Read Out Loud

    jay fresno Level 2

      I know that having tool tips for form fields in a PDF is a requirement for accessibility. When I use View > Read This Page in Acrobat, the reader does not read the tool tips for the form fields, even though I've turned on Read form fields in Preferences > Reading. I have a both check boxes and text fields on the form.

      • What do I need to do to have the Read This Page feature read the form field tool tips?
      • And, if the Read This Page features does actually read the form field tool tips, wouldn't it be rather redundant that it reads the tool tip and then it also reads the text label printed on the form?
      • Are certain types of form fields considered 'not accessible?'

      Thanks for any help you can provide.
