The program creates the graphs using matplotlib and the table using Reportlab and then places them on the page.  After the reports are created, we use Acrobat to manually add alternative text to the figures to make it suitable for a screen reader, providing access for the visually impaired.  This takes a long time.

If it's some kind of annotation I think we could manage this fairly easily. I 
assume you have the plots/graphs as images and are including them by drawing or 
using in a story.

Do you know what kind of annotation is being used by acrobat?
