I would suggest gitting rid of the PDF and go to straight HTML. It is the

Realistically, they should go back to whoever made them so they can be made
accessible. Having lots of form boxes and check boxes aren't a problem, IF
they are labeled and tagged properly and in the right order for filling out
using tab movements. "Mostly accessible" is not enough. It should be fully
