"Link" Annotation is not nested inside a "Link" structure element - But it is!

I have been working on making this 39 page pdf to be ADA compliant. Forgive me if I do a poor job describing the situation. It's not my first time doing this, but I'm far from a pro.

 

I have two links (on two different pages, one email and one url) that are producing the "Link" Annotation is not nested inside a "Link" structure element error on PAC. I have tried anything and everything I can and unfortunately, the only suggestions I can find online are about how to tag a link. There are dozens of links throughout the document and none of the others are producing any errors. I've compared to these problem links to similar links and they are setup the same. I have the <Link> tag with the Link - OBJR nested inside.

 

I've played with the reading order, order in the tag tree, deleted and retagged the link. I even extracted the individual pages and cleared the page structure, tagged it again from scratch, and still got the same error on the same items. 

 

I am not the originator of the document, just the person tasked with making it ADA compliant. Is it possible it's an issue that came from when they created the document?

I guess I can leave this here in case anyone else runs into a similar issue, but I ran Adobe's Pre-Flight tool and it fixed whatever the errors were and now I have a clean ADA compliant document!

Hello, 

 

I am having the same issue--PAC 2021 picks up two errors for ""Link" annotation is not nested inside a "Link" structure element." However, my tags tree looks like this for both tags: 

P > Link > Link-OBJ & Container with text for link

 

There are other links in the document structure the exact same way that do not get flagged for errors. I have followed multiple "fix" steps (Tagged PDF - Link annotation is not nested inside a Link structure element - Accessibility is the ri...) and (How to Fix "Link Annotation Not Nested" Error (theaccessibilityguy.com) none are working. I also ran Adobe's Pre-Flight 2015 fix for tag structure issues and that has not solved the errors. 

 

Any help is much appreciated!
