Good day everyone,

I'm working at making sure one of my forms is WCAG compliant. All is good except when I try to use JAWS to screen-read the form to see if it sounds ok.

I have a bit of dynamic functionality built in the form and it's saved as a dynamic form.

But when the JAWS reader starts reading the form, nothing happens and it tells me no tags are available for him to read out loud.

If I save the form as a static form, the screen-reader works ok.

Is there anyway to work around this? is this an issue at the Adobe level or the JAWS tool? Is there a work around to make this work (we use JAWS where I work)

Or, would using another screen reader work ok?

I need some help on this one.

Thank you very much,

JAWS not reading dynamic forms properly. Try NVDA(Non Visual Desktop Access) tool. It is a free open source screen reader.It is working perfectly fine.
