I have created a brochure with InDesign and need to make it 508 compliant. I have everything done except one ridiculous error when I do the full check: 1 element with alternate text but no page content. I have looked for ghost shapes in my file, checked the structure...seemingly everything. Cannot seem to figure out how to remedy this! Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks
Can you spot an empty tag in the Tags pane? The troublesome tag may not have a '+' next to it, as there is no content to drill down to. Another thing you might try if the document is not terribly long - right-click the first tag and select properties. Leave the properties window open and click on each subsequent tag in turn to find the ones with alt text. Inspect any tag with alt text and delete the one with no content. I am using Acrobat Pro XI on Windows 10 - your Mac experience may vary.
Hope this helps.

YES! thank you! I looked for story tags with no drop down arrow and actually found two (it was only telling me there was one, strangely). Either way, it worked. Much appreciated.
