I've one basic question which I'm not able to figure out.
I'm working on making InDesign document accessible where I stuck when Read Out Loud is not reading the story having special character in it. For example; "If your item isn’t mapped, it’s right where you’d expect!" has couple of special characters in it while converting it to accessible PDF this text was not being read by ROL. My question here is, Can we add alt text anywhere in InDesign that would be read by ROL rather then reading same content as it happens in HTML, for example I could rather add something like "If your item is not mapped, its right where you would expect!" for reading purpose.
Thanks in advance
I don't know what ROL is how it reads the text, or if it can read alt text?
There is the Object Export options and you could choose Alt Text - and choose Custom.
Then paste all your text in there.
But I don't know if it is really what will work.
Thanks for reply Eugene. ROL means 'Read Out Loud’ an Acrobat inbuilt pdf reader.
I tried the way you suggested but it does not seem to work.
Is there any other option or work around to do this?
I'm not sure if there's a way to do it from InDesign.
Check the Acrobat forums.
Sorry I can't help further.
