If the PDF form you are speaking of is the same form that is available and
fillable online, I don't believe you have to worry about making the PDF
version accessible in addition, since as you said the intent is for the PDF
version to be printed and then filled out, and an online / accessible / html
version of the same form is already provided for all users, including users
with disabilities. In other words, you have already provided equal and
equivalent access to all. Pls make sure that the online version is indeed
the same as the PDF and is fully accessible and one who is visually impaired
/ screen reader user can use it independently.

Subject: [Athen] PDF form question
I recently received the following question about a PDF form.
I'm looking for best practices and thoughts about whether a PDF form *must*
be interactive in order to be considered accessible, even if the intent is
that the form be downloaded, printed, filled out manually and mailed in
(USPS). This process is offered, currently, as an alternative to filling out
the form in an online application.
The online form is accessible to individuals with disabilities. Would you
consider it best practice to make the PDF accessible in addition?
