A Survey On The Accessibility Of PDF Forms

I haven’t done this yet and to be honest I may not since it’s been a shockingly long time since I’ve had to fill out a PDF form or deal all that much with PDF documents in general, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of you won’t have perfectly relevant or at least recent thoughts and opinions on the state of things. So if I’m right and you do, have at it.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information from people with disabilities who are using adaptive technology to access PDF forms on various devices, platforms and environments. Although there have been murmurings for several years about the accessibility of PDF documents, there has not been a concerted gathering of what is working for those of us using adaptive technology and the frustrations that we might encounter. If you have a disability but choose not to use adaptive technology, you can also take the survey so that your voice is heard. This is your chance!

The intent of the survey author is to gather feedback to support the advancement of accessible/PDF/UA conforming PDF by document designers, PDF reader/viewer developers and the developers of adaptive technology.

Some of the questions in the survey require long answers.
