Figma to PDF produces a PDF that is difficult to make accessible

Hi all,
When exporting a figma file to PDF I’ve noticed that the entire file is exported as essentially images. This makes creating an accessible PDF from this sort of file rather difficult since the PDF lacks the text structure of a PDF created in Word. For example, I can tag a bunch of text in a PDF from word as a paragraph element and the screen reader will read this, whereas if I attempt to tag text in a PDF from figma the text isn’t read by the screen reader. Is there a plugin/work process that can help with this?
