Reset button

What is your opinion on reset buttons (input
type="reset"), both from an usability standpoint and
accessibility standpoint?

Do people find these buttons helpful or confusing? Do
users of assistive technologies find these helpful?
Does their position matter (usually, they're at the
bottom left of the page; does that work for people)?

Personally, I never use them.

Also, I suspect that they are only of use if the form
is long, rather than short.

Thanks for your insights,
Rachel Sengers
