Re: filling out forms with adobe reader and nvda

Really the actual document has to have been made interactive in the first place for this to work. The supplier has probably just sent a pdf for sighted people to print out and fill in.
You can either ask them to rectify this either by an on line html form or supply you with a document you can edit.
I've seen this so many times from companies who really should know better.
I guess you might be able to extract the text and then reformat it into a text document, but why should you have to do their work for them?

Subject: [nvda] filling out forms with adobe reader and nvda

Hello all,

I was wondering if there is a way to fill out forms in adobe reader. These forms don't actually have any clear indications of checkboxes or anything like that that. This form just has ___ where you are supposed to put your information.

Any help would be wonderful
