Hello,

Id be happy for some guidance how to create accessible word forms. I have
two such projects and have some questions.
Questions such as:
1. how do you limit the boundaries of a table so when one writes inside it
it does'nt continue to expand, pushing aside the other columns?
2. how do you control focus order? The focus in the form I created keeps
jumping once I open the document and the screen reader to a column in a
table further down the document?

Maybe there is some detailed manual out there?

Thanks

Ayelet

Hello Ayelet,

Did you lock down the form? If so, was there information outside of the
form?

Is the form itself in columns? Or is the whole document in columns?

Word forms can be problematic, do you have to use Word in this case?

Cheers

Lisa
