Alt text for images in Word 2010 always get lost when "save as PDF" is selected

Hi gang

Is it just me or has anyone else seen this?
I've been trying to save an accessible PDF document with a bunch of
screen shots. The document is edited in MS Word 2010.
Whenever I try to save the document as PDF the alt text of the images
disappears (I domake sure that "tagged PDF" is selected in the PDF
options in that dialog).
Has anyone else experienced thi, or am I possibly doing something
wrong (scary thought, but it happens occasionally). ;)
Be well all, hope you U.S. folks have gotten over the turkey and you
had a great Thanksgiving.
