Redaction removing accessibility features

Using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC: I have several documents that have been created with accessibilty features (including alternate text for figures).  I need to create redacted versions of these that remove certain words and phrases, but when I apply the redaction it removes all of the alternate text that was added for the figures.  There is a toggle switch for the last "Apply" step to remove hidden information;  when I enable that switch, it removed everything (bookmarks, etc.); when I leave it on it still removes the figure alternate text.  Is there a solution to preventing the accessibility features from being removed?
