bounding box missing

I have a word document in which several images are embedded. The images have borders and must be inserted inline. The Word 2010 document is then converted to pdf. Within Acrobat, tagging and alternate text are added (could also add alt text within Word). When this file is checked for accessibility using PAC 2.0 standards, all images have the error, bounding box missing.
I do not understand a lot about COM programming, but is seems that the SnagIt COM Server manual indicates that bounding boxes can be set using com. Is there a simple way, without programming, to set bounding boxes on a snagit image inserted into a Word doc?

The bounding box that the Snagit COM Server API refers to is the location/area of the capture.   It can be adjusted, but that just adjusts the location/area of the capture taken,  it doesn't affect the output into Word.

In Adobe Acrobat Pro, open the file.  Select the tag for the existing figure and delete it.  Use the Touch Up Reading Order tool to select the Image again.  Right click the Figure tag and select Properties.  Add your alternate text.  You will note that the tag now has some additional options, including Bounding Boxes.  This is a known issue when converting from Word with images.
