I'm saying that the LiveCycle family of products creates tagged PDF forms that can support accessibility, both forms and documents without interactive controls. For forms, LiveCycle creates XFA and Acroforms, as well as creating HTML forms from the same design source file.

Hi Andrew,

are you intending to say LiveCycle is good at creating accessible PDF forms, or really accessible PDF documents in general?

And regarding forms: would that be (accessible) LiveCycle forms (also known as XFA forms), or also so called (accessible) AcroForms?
