Submit Buttons

Test info

This test is based on the WCAG 2.0 Technique PDF15: Providing submit buttons with the submit-form action in PDF forms

Failure cause

Document does not have submit button for each form

The PDF document contains a form that has no submit button.

Why this may be a barrier

If the form in a PDF document contains no proper submit button, users of assistive technology or users who navigate the document with a keyboard, might encounter difficulties when they want to submit the form.

A submit button that is clearly visible and implemented according to the specification will make the form more usable for all people.
