Within the structure tree, you can right click (if you are using a mouse
:-)) and go to element properties.  There you can set alternate or actual
text for images.  It is also helpful to title the images to organize the
structure tree better.

This is very helpful not only for images, but if any text does not 'map to
unicode'.  Here you can set alternate and actual text so that screen readers
can read the data correctly.  Hope this helps.

good luck.

Subject: Accesibility of PDF files & editing them

Hi everybody

I have worked with PDF files for making them accessible using "Make
Accessible Plugin". Still there are some issues which makes image tags and
form fields unaccessible in PDF files.

Is there anybody who can give me a little idea of how to edit PDF file just
to add a image alternate text or something like that?
