Creating Accessible PDF Fillable Forms (Digital Accessibility Webinar)

Wednesday, September 20, 2023, from 10 am to 11 am PT

Did you know that creating fillable PDF forms is crucial in meeting WCAG compliance? If you have a website form that is not a fillable PDF and requires a user to print it out to submit, users of assistive technology will face an accessibility barrier. In this webinar, we explore the different types of forms available in Acrobat, discuss best practices in formatting with accessibility in mind, and review the tag structure for fillable forms in PDF remediation to make them accessible for users. Join Michael Parker from Access Ingenuity for the basics of form creation in Acrobat Pro.
