Retrieve text and image alt-text for read-aloud feature

Hi guys

I am currently working on a project that requires the implementation of a read-aloud feature for PDF documents. The PDFs I'm dealing with include images with alt-text. My goal is to extract both the text and alt-text from the PDF while maintaining the correct reading order to enable the read-aloud functionality.

 
To accomplish this, I would appreciate your guidance on the following:
1. Extracting the text from the PDF while preserving the reading order that I've set using Adobe Acrobat.
2. Extracting the alt-text associated with the images in the PDF, also following the correct reading order.
3. Combining the extracted text and alt-text in the right order, which has been set using accessibily, to generate the content for a text-to-speech system.
 
Regards

I may be wrong, but I believe Acrobat and Reader confirm to the system's accessibility APIs. https://opensource.adobe.com/dc-acrobat-sdk-docs/acrobatsdk/pdfs/acrobatsdk_access.pdf

No, I don't think so. That's not an Adobe product.

Or, do you mean PDF Services API for Java -- this product... Getting Started with Adobe PDF Services API and Java | Adobe Acrobat Services (which is indeed Adobe, but nothing to do with the Acrobat SDK). This is outside our expertise but try the forum, confusingly called "Acrobat Services API" Acrobat Services API - Adobe Support Community
