Citation superscript


From: Leah Roderman

My organization produces long documents that are intended to be printed and are distributed in PDF. We have one that has over 150 note numbers in superscript for citations that are listed at the end of the document. I went looking for a best practices guide about formatting those and have run into conflicting information about how screen readers parse superscript. I'm hoping someone on this list has expertise: if you have a resource for this specific usage, please let me know.
