Default Help: How do you edit text within a picture in Word 2003?

I'm editing a manuscript in Word 2003. The author has included a picture; there is text within the picture frame. I need to edit this text for spelling etc., but can't get 'into' it to do so.

The Picture Toolbar doesn't help me do this. And if I right-click on the picture, the option 'Edit picture' is greyed-out.

Can anyone help me? I'd appreciate any answers!

I'd personally download a picture editing program such as Gimp and make the changes manually. Since it's a picture, you won't be able to simply select the text and re-write.
