Improve InDesign Accessibility Export to PDF
ARTICLES AND LAYERS
When the logical reading order is set in Articles, it would save time if Layers could replicate the same order, whether it’s automated or if there was a way to select “Use Articles reading order for Layers.”
Set header scope for both columns and rows in cell properties in InDesign.
Simplified complex table structure.
Set the hyperlink and correct tags when footnotes are referenced in tables.
More layout flexibility would also be helpful.
Adding Alt text to hyperlinks
Paths not included in Articles should remain artifacts. If that’s not an option, maybe a “Find and Artifact” option would be helpful.
We have a legal statement translated in multiple languages. Currently, only 9 of the languages we need partially export to PDF. It would save a lot of time to have the language codes added in the Content properties automatically included in the Tags properties. We’re currently typing them in both places manually.
Thanks for your time!
What a time saver this feature would be.

I want to second Bevi's comments about ROW HEADERS:
"Need an easy way to set the first column or two as Row Headers. This is being required by the newest standards and government requirements."
"Voting +1 table headers, but would like for both SCOPE and SPAN to be set on both column and row headers, especially when the cells are merged."

Voting +1 for Alt-Text on hyperlinks.
The standards require "meaningful text for hyperlinks" which is very doable in websites, but not often appropriate in PDF documents. Alt-text on PDF hyperlinks would be extremely helpful in making them more accessible. Give us an easy way to do this in InDesign's Hyperlinks Panel.
