If you convert a table cell to a graphic cell and then make that cell a form field, when you export the table to an interactive PDF file, the form tag appears outside of the table cell tag.
1.) Create a table.
2.) Select a cell and choose Convert cell to graphic cell
3.) With the graphic cell selected, choose Text field from the buttons and forms panel to convert the cell to an interactive form field.
4.) Export file to interactive PDF with tags enabled.
When you view the pdf and open the Tags pane, the form field should appear within the cell tag but it doesn't, at appears somewhere below the table.
Workaround: I've been able to achieve the desired result by selecting the interactive form field and cutting it. Then inserting the text cursor in the cell and doing a paste. Now when the PDF is exported, at least it appears within the cell. Unfortunately it as a container <p> which I'd prefer that it didn't have, but it's still usable.
We acknowledge that the issue is slowing you down and we regret the same.
Our investigation suggests that the issue lies in the latest update of Acrobat and there is little that can be done at our end to resolve the issue.
The problem has been communicated to the relevant team.
In the meanwhile we are closing this thread for InDesign.
I'm going to confirm that the Reading Order panel is very messy with Spans but the styles do export to the proper tags. For the sake of clarity, I'm going to file a new bug with more descriptions.

Glad you were able to reproduce and I would love if this could get fixed sooner than later! I would also like to point out that any hyperlinks after the initial one are not longer active hyperlinks in any of the other footnotes.
Issue is now fixed and is part of InDesign’s latest update, Id 13.1
Please update your InDesign for the resolution of the issue.
1.) Apply alternate text to graphic using Object > Object Export Options.
2.) Anchor graphic into frame
3.) Add containing text frame to Articles panel.
4.) Export to PDF including tags
The result is that the exported PDF file doesn't have the alternate text applied
