Making files flexible and accessible

Some tagged Adobe PDF documents may not contain all the information necessary to make the document contents fully flexible or accessible. For example, if you want to reuse the document in another format or make all items fully available to a screen reader, the PDF document should contain alternate text for figures, language properties for portions of the text that use a different language than the default language for the document, and expansion text for abbreviations. (Designating the appropriate language for different text elements ensures that the correct characters are used when you reuse the document for another purpose, that the word can be pronounced correctly when read out loud, and that it will be spell-checked with the correct dictionary.)

You can add alternate text and multiple languages to a tag using the Tags tab. (If only one language is required, it is easier to choose the language in the Document Properties dialog box.) You can also add alternate text using the Touchup Reading Order tool.
