    Tagging Acronyms/Abbreviations in Indesign for an accessible pdf

    oakandleaf

      I am trying to figure out the proper way to tag an acronym in an InDesign file to be properly read aloud in accessible pdf. Currently as it stands, the acronymns are being read as words instead of individual letters ( ex. APR is trying to be pronounced as 1 word). The only way I can think of is to outline that text and give it alt text, but this doesn't seem to be the most efficient way, especially since this acronym reoccurs throught the document in the middle of paragraphs. Also, when this is tagged, should it be the full phrase rather than the acronym that is read aloud, such as APR vs Annual Percentage Rate, even if it is defined elsewhere in the document what it stands for?
