Fonts in "safety" area

We create files with a Media size of 8.75 x 11.25. Green Lines
Trim size is 8.5 x 11 with a .125 Bleed all around. (8.75 x 11.25) Blue Lines
We set the Art box .25 smaller than Trim Box for our “text safety” area. Red Lines
Is there an action or check to see if there is any text falling in the “safety” region? Between the 8 x 10.5 and 8.5 x 11 region? Yellow
Well actually all I need is if there is any text outside the Art Box. I'm guessing outlined fonts wouldn't be detected nor graphics containing text.
Please see enclosed PDF.
Thank you in advance

All I can see is a check to see if there are objects outside of a page box. Doesn't seem to be a designation for just text. There should be though. Would be handy.

Outlined fonts wouldn't be detected nor graphics containing text. This can only be checked organoleptically. We solved it in such a way that the client could judge it for himself

Ok. I call a 'grammar foul.'
Organoleptically typically refers to smell and taste (per the innertubes.)
But MORE egregious is using a 7 syllable word for us mortals to comprehend.

a 7 syllable word
yeah! we're not playing scrabble here!


I think agfa apogee prepress 11 had a font preflight for this problem, but it's been years since I used that work flow. Very expensive unless you can use it on a larger basis, like imposition for plates?

Since I preflight images with my eyes*, I'm also checking fonts.

* some clients think taking a web/72dpi image and making it 300dpi helps. It... does... not! Stop it!
