electronic equivalent of the black marker by setting a black box
around the text to be redacted or be tricky and set the text to be
redacted to white so it is invisible, right? Unfortunately, these
methods do not redact the text which can often be recovered
by optical character recognition (OCR) through searching the
text, by cutting and pasting the black box, or by changing the
text color of the electronic document. So, no, these techniques
do not redact the text. So how do you redact a document?
Many electronic discovery software systems offer effective
redaction tools, but the most popular and an effective redaction
tool is Adobe Acrobat Pro. The free Adobe Reader version does
not perform redaction. There are less expensive alternative PDF
tools which offer redaction which should be effective:
* PDFfiller has a free Google Chrome add-in and an online version to redact from your browser (https://redact-pdf.
pdffiller.com).
* PDFelement is about $100 per computer and includes
redaction (https://pdf.wondershare.com).

* Nitro Pro is a full featured PDF software for about $160
per computer (https://store.gonitro.com).
* Nuance Power PDF Advanced has been my favorite
Adobe Acrobat Pro alternative and is about $150 per

computer but look for discounts to about $100 (http://www.
nuancescan.com).

* I have tried some of these tools in the past (most have free trials),
but I have always come back to paying for Adobe Acrobat Pro
as the tool I trust for my use. Acrobat Pro DC is about $15 per
month or Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 download or disc is about
$450 to purchase. Acrobat Pro version XI stopped getting support
including security updates on October 15, 2017, so it is time to
upgrade if you are using Acrobat version XI or below.

Using Adobe Acrobat Pro to redact a document is quite simple
and effective, if expensive. A step by step guide is available on the web
for free here: https://lawyerist.com/how-to-redact-a-pdf/.
