Re: Keyboard /Screen reader accessible - Signature facility for Online forms :

I remember participating in a training a few years ago and a digital signature is valid if you have a way to validate the user (login for instance) and there is also interaction on the part of the user (button, sign with finger, type name, etc.). As long as you have those two things, you have a valid digital signature.

When it comes to accessibility, any of those interactive options would work … it just boils down to design/developer preference.
