numbers being replaced with periods in PDF - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I'm working on tagging PDFs to be 508. All of the pdfs have already been made and the tagging is being done in Acrobat Pro 8. The problem is seen in the "content" window looking at the tags. The doent text can be seen and numbers like "1s", "2s", "4s" and "6s" have been replaced with periods. Not every PDF is the same, some will only be missing the 2s and another will be missing the 4s and 6s. When the PDFs are viewed on screen or printed out they are fine, its the screen reader that has the problem. ...

    Default numbers being replaced with periods in PDF

    I'm working on tagging PDFs to be 508. All of the pdfs have already been made and the tagging is being done in Acrobat Pro 8.

    The problem is seen in the "content" window looking at the tags. The doent text can be seen and numbers like "1s", "2s", "4s" and "6s" have been replaced with periods. Not every PDF is the same, some will only be missing the 2s and another will be missing the 4s and 6s.

    When the PDFs are viewed on screen or printed out they are fine, its the screen reader that has the problem.

    I believe all of these PDFs where made straight from InDesign and not saved as a postscript file and then distilled. PDFs done the long way seem to be fine.

    Have anyone else had this problem on a Mac?

    Can you check the metadata inside the PDF from InDesign to see if the
    problem files are from an earlier version of InDesign or not? In
    addition, do we know if this text was tagged or not (via the STRUCTURE
    command) ...

    A little more investigation ?
