Three tips for creating accessible forms

1. Be sure it is possible to navigate through the form fields in a logical order using the tab key.

2. Avoid exclusively physical forms in favor of forms that can be completed entirely electronically with the use of a keyboard. This can potentially require electronic signatures. In addition, avoid standard CAPTCHA verification in favor of the “I am not a robot” reCAPTCHA, which is a more accessible alternative.

3. Avoid time limitations on forms. Screen readers and other assistive technologies often take longer to use than a standard computer setup.
