Re: Custom bullets in InDesign and Actual Text

@Bevi: Thank you for all that glorious helpful info, I have bookmarked your
tutorial and tried it out, I can confirm that it worked like a charm: after
I used the Preflight tool, all custom bullets read out as "bullet" without
having to manually fix each list instance, just using the tool once.
Beautiful! As Phil mentioned, I also clearly need to look more closely at
the Preflight section of Acrobat to see what other helpful tools it can
offer for accessible PDFs.

@Colleen: Hi, can you expand on what you mean by "I've noticed this fixup
will also change ordered/numbered lists, even though it's not supposed to."
? How does it change ordered/numbered lists?

Thanks for all the help!
