[Athen] forms in Excel need to be accessible

I'm working with a unit that has a number of forms in Excel that need to be accessible. The forms include edit fields, radio buttons, and checkboxes. I'm not aware of a way to make the Excel forms accessible, so I'd like to convert them to something else that is accessible.

Is an accessible PDF form the best option available? If so, has anyone had experience converting a form in Excel into an accessible PDF? I'm going to guess it won't be as simple as just "save as PDF".

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
