Several footnotes are present on page 7 of the tagging exercise book (tagged-exercise-book.pdf). The footnote callouts are tagged with a span <Span> tag, and each one has an alternate text entered (for example, “see note 1”). Then, the footnotes present at the bottom of the page are added to the <Note> tag.

Note: It is important that the footnotes are read as soon as possible after the footnote callout, without, nonetheless, interrupting the flow of information. For example, when there is a footnote callout within a paragraph, have the paragraph read until the end, and then read the footnote afterwards by placing the corresponding tag just after it.
