Re: Creating accessible, fillable PDFs?
I live in Portland.
I can confirm the document is not accessible.
Have you heard of the Easi.cc website? They host lots of webinars, some paid and some free. I know they have done them on creating accessible PDF fillable forms.

Subject: Creating accessible, fillable PDFs?
I am having a lot of trouble making this fillable PDF accessible. (Both attached and at this link: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/article/661427 )
I’ve added tooltips to the form fields, tagged the text, and adjusted the reading
But when I run the accessibility checker, it does show *something *is off. it asks me to “caption” an “image” and it’s referring to all of page one!
I’m wondering if I tagged something incorrectly or the file size is somehow beyond the capacity of JAWs (which seems unlikely).
Do you have any ideas about what went wrong or how to make it right?
Also, we are hoping to find a company who can create accessible documents and forms so that we know they are accessible the first time, every time. Does anyone have any suggestions for companies that do good work?
We would especially love to use an organization that prioritizes the lived experience of people who need/use assistive technology and one located in or near Portland, Oregon. But we’re open to any suggestions.
