Hello everyone,

We are creating letter/memo templates in word. Client wants to know if form fields are accessible. The main purpose of the templates is to ensure the users only fill the required sections and not change the format of the document. There is no database integration required.

I tried creating a word form with a few text fields. JAWS for some reason reads the previous field name and then the field in focus. I have followed the instructions provided by Freedom Scientific, http://www.freedomscientific.com/Training/accessible-forms-in-word.htm.

Please do let me know if I am doing something wrong. Your help is much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Madhavi.
