What makes a form accessible?
|Creating fillable Microsoft Word forms|
Simple accessible forms can be created using Microsoft Word but you must be careful to use Legacy Control Types. You are generally safe with text boxes but check boxes and drop-down lists may pose problems for keyboard users or screen-reader users. Be sure to protect any non-fillable areas of the document to facilitate keyboard navigation between fields.
