I am creating an accessible PDF which includes some hyperlinks, but when I test them using VoiceOver, nothing happens (i.e. the text is read, but VO doesn't recognise the link or give an option to open it).
I have designed the PDF in InDesign CC. The links are within bullet points, and are tagged as 'bullets' in InDesign, within an Article set up in the order I want the document to be read. Within InDesign I have added alt text to the hyperlink.
To view it, I am opening in Preview and viewing at Single Page view, and the text reads perfectly – apart from the links. I have also tried 'VO+command+L' (Next link) and nothing happens.
Voiceover in Preview does not read out aloud as it should, neither does Acrobats build-in 'voice'. You should test with dedicated software that understands the tag-structure, choose Jaws and check it with that. Forget about Preview, very bad app.
