Random Alt-text reading on VoiceOver

Hi everyone, 

 

I have an accessibility question. I have a pdf that has alt-text for the images. The alt-text reads correctly with NVDA (screen reader), but when I use VoiceOver (iPhone/iPad) it reads the alt-text, but not the alt-text that should be read.

 

For example: an image read by NVDA on my PC in Acrobat reads: cute dog with child (correct atl-text)

But when it's read by VoiceOver on an ipad in Safari, the alt-text reads: night sky (random alt-text, origin unknown!)

 

Any ideas about why this might be happening? It's an accessibility conundrum!

Thanks!
