  • Steve Werner says:

    I’m not an accessibility expert, but when I did a Google search on it, I found this interesting link:

    This is saying it didn’t work in InDesign 2020 (15.0.1) but works in 15.0.2.

    But I’d love to hear what Dax or Chad say about it.

  • Ananda La Vita says:

    About the “alt text” option for hyperlinks… I use it regularly, but agree with David that it doesn’t seem to DO anything, at least not for exported PDFs. I will keep using it anyway, in case I’m wrong.

    As for what to type into it, what I used to do was write out the hyperlinks in a phonetical way (!) until I read in an accessibility forum that it’s better to just type something simple and short such as “Link to web page” or “Link to online registration form.”
