Even traditional static HTML Web pages include forms, radio buttons and
combo boxes all requiring the user's participation. As HTML5 becomes
increasingly available,

browsing the Web will be more and more an interactive experience.
Users who browse the web using screen reader or screen application
applications are the users who experience the most frustration.
Forms and form-type elements are popping up more frequently in both PDF and
Word documents where correct design is crucial for these to be useful to
these same

populations. While users with upper body motor impairments or those with
visual and cognitive impairments are not impacted as severely as users of
screen reader and

screen magnification applications, they may also have frustrations
especially if filling the form limits time to fill the form.
