This sounds like another among many very badly designed forms.
A correctly designed form should announce the field (and its type, e.g. checkbox) when you land in it, and in a way that's descriptive enough to let you know what it is you're supposed to do if it's not self explanatory.
Many people create "forms" in word that are nothing more than what would be printed out for pencil/pen and paper filling out. That's not a form, in any meaningful sense, that's accessible or able to be easily filled out by anyone in Word itself.
