Expert Guidance

For the design of accessible forms it is particularly important to verify appropriateness with assistive technologies like screen readers and ensure proper navigation for users who can access the form by keyboard only. Therefore the expert user is advised to evaluate the form also in this respect. Beyond this it should be mentioned that in order to ensure accessibility of a form presented on a website, it might be necessary to validate the design by the target user group.
