[Accessibility] Is there a manual tagging with selection equivalent in the API?

Hi!
I know that Adobe Acrobat Pro allows users to add new (accessibility) tags doing a manual selection of the texts, is there something equivalent that can be achieved using the API? 
I have a bunch of PDFs that have no tags and I need to tag them to fix the accessibility, I'd like to write a program to automate and speed up the process because the PDFs are too much to perform the fixing manually. I can NOT use the autotag API because the PDFs are quite complex and the autotag result would be wrong (I tryed using the demo). Is there something I can do? 

Thank you,

Simona

I'm... confused. You want an automated solution.. but you want it manual? You can't have it both.

I'd likes to know if there is an Api service that i can call in a c# program to add a tag connected to a specific text or area 🤔 the same output achieved with manual remediation (manual selection with tag) but achieved calling the api service (passing the kind of tag and area or something like that) 🤔 i guess it's not an existing festure at the moment but i wanted to be sure 🤔

Let me know if it's clear now 😊

I can't speak to future things, and I'm just a tiny pawn in the great organization that is Adobe, so, there's that. 😉

No auto-tag tool application will ever be able to make a PDF file accessible. They can only reduce the amount of work necessary to make it conform to PDF/UA. Some degree of manual remediation will always be required.

I know that the auto tag doesn't work that is why i wanted to know if there is a service that i can call in c# (or similar) and that passing the right information would allow me to achieve the same output i would achive manually 🤔 i would be able to retrive the right information to pass insider the program and with other methods 😊

You're describing auto-tag.

I don't think so... with auto-tag i would pass a PDF and have a tagged PDF as output but since my PDF are complex the tagging would be wrong (i already tryed this so this is a fact not a possibility ☹️)... instead i know exactly how the tag structure should be, so if i was able to call the api passing the tag created by myself and the area of the text the resulting tagged PDF should be correctly tagged... 

As i said i have hundreds and hundreds of untagged PDF with the same tag structure to add and so i can not fix them manually 😞 but i will fix them programmatically in another way, ever if it will take more time 🙈
