InDesign Radio Button Accessibility

I'm creating a form in InDesign which needs to be accessible. I'm trying to create radio buttons that need a yes or no response. I enter a description under for the Yes radio button that says "yes" and when I export and preview in acrobat and hover over the buttons, the alt text is showing up as "yes" for both the Yes and No buttons.

Is there any resolution for this?

You've encountered an interesting behavior in InDesign. Although InDesign allows you to enter a unique description for each radio button, this isn't allowed in Acrobat. If you go into Prepare Form mode after exporting the PDF, you'll notice that both radio buttons contain the same description. That's because with radio buttons, both fields have the same name with a unique button value (yes or no). So to answer your question, there's no way around this because both buttons have the same name and therefore the same description value. I'd change the description to say "choose appropriate button for your choice".
