PDF and Run Together Text

I have a PDF that visually looks correct, I am told. The Master was done in Quark Express, and a PDF exported. Accessibility elements, (alt-text) etc. was done in Acrobat, reading order, tables etc. Everything is fine except that in speech and Braille some of the words in regular text portions are run together without spaces. I have seen this before, many times and don't know the cause, or solution.
