Excerpt
Excerpt: An accessible form is one that a wide range of people can use, including those who may have disabilities that affect how they are able to interact with the form on the computer screen. For example, the form user may have a visual impairment or reduced mobility. Designer includes a number of features and capabilities that enhance the usability of forms for users with a range of disabilities, and assist form authors in creating PDF forms that are more accessible to people with disabilities. Designer provides support for tagged Adobe PDF forms. Tagged PDF forms include a complete logical structure plus additional information about a document?s contents that substantially increases accessibility. When creating accessible forms, you need to consider whether the form is intended for interactive filling by end users, or whether the form is intended for viewing and printing purposes only.
