    link footnote

    gerryswordfish

      I want to hyperlink all footnote references to their footnotes so screen reader users can easily jump to footnotes from page text.

       

      If I create a footnote, a <Reference> tag is added to the PDF export. It is announced by the JAWS 14 screen reader as a link however this is misleading because there is no link annotation. The 'link' is effectively a dead link.

       

      I would like each footnote reference to link screen reader users to the footnote, and ideally, to enable them to jump back from the footnote to the reference. Can this be achieved with InDesign CC 2015?

       

      Alternatively, can anyone suggest another way to add footnotes that will ensure they are easy to find and read by screen reader users?

       

      Thanks in advance, Gerry
