PDF and alt tags

Hello all,

I have an interesting situation, I have a PDF, and a second copy that was
recently updated. In the initial file, pressing G would navigate through
the graphics reading out the alt text. However, in the new version, pressing
G just gives me a graphic number. The creator assures me that the Alt tags
have not changed, however, clearly the behavior between the two files is
different. We thought it could be a security setting but even completely
unlocked the new file doesn't respond like the initial one did.

Any thoughts?
