Form Design Considerations
Interactive can be a major barrier for users, especially those on a screen reader. Issues for navigating forms and interactive pages include:
- Users on a screen reader may not know what information to put into a particular field.
- Form controls and icons may not be fully identified on a screen reader
- Forms or interactive controls which only work with a mouse is a barrier for the motion impaired user as well as screen readers.
- If a user does not enter information correctly into a form, the error report form should clearly identify the location and type of error.
No matter what platform a form is created in, these guidelines should be implemented.
