[Athen] Accessible PDF Forms - Fillable

You might include a note that they need to keep their Adobe Reader updated. My husband, who is not disabled refuses to update Adobe Reader past version 8 and cannot electronically archive any fillable PDFS, accessible or otherwise because older versions don't save your entries; you have to print *BEFORE* you save. He's convinced the newer Adobe readers just slow his PC down and have too much added in junk, but we learned the hard way that any forms he fills in won't save.

This can be done using a PDF document. Once you create the form, add the form controls and check the accessibility the form can be put on your website. Someone can download it, fill it out (provided you've made the form controls accessible and they are in separate <Form> Tags in the Tags Tree), save it and work on it as needed and then submit it. This gives them a copy of the form for their records and in case they need to resubmit it.

Cheers, Karen

We are trying to create accessible forms that can be completed online and saved. Can this be done with a PDF or do we need to utilize another technology such as web forms or survey software?
