Hi all,

I was wondering if you can disable the pop-up messages of Adobe Reader when I hover over a photo in Adobe Reader XI version 11. E.g. the following pop-up messages appear:

- A picture containing clock, indoor, black, object

Description generated with very high confidence

-A close up of a bowl

Description generated with very high confidence

- A picture containing indoor, wall, bicycle

Description generated with very high confidence

Can you turn this feature off? Most of the time it does not make sense to the content in the picture.

Hope someone can help because I am unable to find it on the internet.

Thanks,

Elias

In Powerpoint, it sounds like you would need to remove the alternative text for the images. That's what you are seeing. It's an accessibility thing.If you don't know how to do that, you'll want to hit up a Powerpoint forum.

Thank you for answering Bernd,

I create the PDF files in Power Point (save as, as PDF).

Excellent.

The text is generated in PowerPoint, called Alt Text.

The only way i found to resolve this issue was to go to tools -> accesibility -> set alternate text, it will prompt a window that propose to save or edit the alt text.

And then you go through all the images that can have potential alternate text and you delete or edit.

My document had 1295 images but it worked.

Good luck.
