My team was given a multi-page scanned pdf document with redacted content that we converted to a readable pdf using the OCR option in Acrobat. Redacted content is tagged as a figure with alt text - "Redacted content". What is the best practice for setting up the reading order to pass assessability testing when redactions appear within paragraphs? We do not have access to the original document. Thank you.

Does it fail? It sounds correct and required that the accessible view acknowleges the redaction, and the words seem correct.

It passes Acrobat's accessibility check except for the logical reading order. If anyone has experience remediating a redacted pdf to be compliant please let me know. Thanks!
