Hi Mike,

Apologies for not stipulating that I was looking for a html solution.
Javascript is seeming like the only viable way to me too. Shame that there
is so much effort being put into CSS3 and HTML5 that such things get through
the net.

Regards,

Steven

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?

Regards,

Steven
