Tagging each image in Pdf for accessibility

Hi,

I was just wondering if its possible to loop through all the images in a pdf and add text tag to the image, so that the images can be read using a screen reader software used by people with visual impairment?
If so, can you please provide with a code snippet?

Thank you

This is how far I have reached.

var pdfDocument = new Document(@"C:\Users\dpft\Desktop\TH.pdf");
var structure = pdfDocument.LogicalStructure;

var structElement = structure.Children;

var children = structElement[0].Children;

foreach (var child in children)
        {
            if (child is Aspose.Pdf.Structure.FigureElement)
            {
                child.Alt = "HaHaHeHeHuHuHoHo";
            }
        }
pdfDocument.Save(@"C:\Users\dpft\Desktop\TH11.pdf");

This doesnt seem to do the job. That is, hovering over the image does not show the text HaHa…

Please let me know if I am missing anything here.

Thank you.
