Accessible Hyperlinks in PDF

Dear Group, I am having great difficulty making the hyperlinks in my PDF
forms recognized by AT. The forms start in Word and then I make it into
a PDF. In PDF the hyperlinks work via mouse, but are not recognized by
JAWS nor NVDA. I have searched for ways to make them work, but all of
the techniques I have found online don't seem to work. I am using Adobe
Acrobat Professional XI.

Can someone give me the exact steps to take to make the hyperlinks
recognized in the PDF and work via the keyboard, or point me in the
right direction? I would REALLY appreciate the help.

Thank you!
