Create Accessible Forms


Web-based forms using HTML are the best way to provide forms. HTML forms are the most accessible format and they are easier to create than forms in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF. In addition, not only is it more difficult to create "accessible" forms with these programs, they are also more difficult for all users to navigate and complete - even for users not using assistive technologies. With this in mind, always consider using web-based forms unless some kind of document based form is needed for some reason.
