Applying the Google-hits metric, it seems real enough. :-) Obvious
alternatives ("if it can be tabbed to" or "if you can tab to it") seem
awkward. The word is clear in this context so at the risk of sending
the English language farther down the road to ruin, I think it's OK.

The files actually apply to examples 1 and 2 only, so the 2nd link is
misplaced. The idea is that the Word file can be used to generate a
PDF, and the alt text can be added in the ways described in examples 1
and 2 (using Pro tools). If this seems unclear/incorrect/inadequate,
let me know. What would you propose? Thx.

Later email noted the link works, this comment is irrelevant.
