Keith ,

that is a great question

The guidence provided by the access board is clear that as long as nothing seperate the text/inputs and the completion of the form. So it could. I think you said you are getting training on this and your tool. If I read right it is AccVerify. This is a specific part of basic training and can of course be demonstrated.

So to answer your question in a common way: Possibly. However, I would recommend using labels. Whenever I get out for a training it is what I recommend :)

I hope this helps keith
