moderated Fillable PDF‘s

Hello group,
I am using fusion 2020. I have a PDF I need to fill out for work. There is a fill and sign button on the right, and that allowed me to put a cursor in the fields on the PDF. I can tell that because I use the magnification part effusion. However, jaws will not allow me to fill anything out. Any idea of how I can go about filling out this form?

Thanks very much,
Bonnie Vegiard

Hello Bonnie,

 

First thing I would try is to turn off the jaws cursor with insert + z.

Second option I would test is see if the .pdf can be opened in MS Word, make the changes and then save as .pdf. 

 

I think the latest and greatest versions of Word support .pdf out of the box.  If I am wrong, certain someone on this list will correct me.

 

 

Thanks, Abraham

OK, thank you. I have one form that the first fix worked for another form that I think the second fix is going to work for. I appreciate it.
