Re: Textarea content cropped when printed

PDF offers a solution if you make the field expandable. We have confirmed that this is supported for PDFs created with Acrobat Professional 9 when using NVDA or JFW 9+. MS Word forms will also expand and are easy to make accessible. I don't know of a solution in HTML but it may be possible to use JS to extract the content and place in a div with paragraphs for printing.

Subject: [WebAIM] Textarea content cropped when printed

I've been trawling the web and I have yet to find a workable solution for
stopping textarea (or input) field content from being cropped when printed,
if the content itself is larger than the allotted field.

Has anybody come across this and found a good solution?
