Accessibility of Shape Text for Screen Readers

Hello everyone! My team and I are using Shapes + the Text function to put headings on our pages, as we want a specific font that is not available if you use text boxes on the desktop free version (Segoe UI Semibold). However, we are uncertain if screen readers will read the Text, or if we need to be adding alternative text to the shape so that it will announce the headings to anyone using a screen reader.

 

I have googled this question and not had any luck finding a definitive answer! If anyone happens to know, it would be deeply appreciated.

 

Example of one of the shapes (the bold text at the top uses a shape) and the setting we are using to add the font to it:
