Subject: [jaws-uk] Troublesome Word form


Hi,

I've got a form I need to fill in for a job application and am having
trouble with it.  As I tab around JAWS just says edit and doesn't say the
label for the edit fields.  The only way I can figure out what I'm meant to
type where is by using the JAWS cursor to check what I've written after I've
typed it.

I'm just wondering if anyone else could have a look at this form and tell me
whether they have trouble with it too.  I want to tell the organisation that
the form's not accessible if it isn't, but I want to make sure I'm not
missing something.  I also want to tell them how they can improve the
accessibility of it but am not sure what to tell them.

I'm using JAWS 7 and Word 2003.  If anyone could have a look please let me
know and I'll e-mail the form to you.  And any info on creating accessible
forms would be gratefully received.

Catherine
