I'm using Acrobat Pro XI. When you run the "Remove Hidden Info" from Actions with the "Hidden text" checkbox selected, Acrobat will actually remove words that have been covered up by the user who had added annotations, graphics, etc. over those words.

How can I identify those words from Javascript? If Acrobat identifies them and removes them as "hidden words" is there a way to identify those words from javascript?

Not possible with JavaScript.

It is possible to identify words that are covered by annotations, but not other things like graphic elements.
