You should advise your users with vision disabilities to turn off Smartfill in their Viewer preferences.
Smartfill is a feature that automatically fills out portions of a form in the Viewer. This is accomplished by storing commonly used information, such as the user's name and address, on the user's computer. The Viewer can then access this information at any time, using it to automatically complete sections of forms that require it.
The first time the Viewer opens a Smartfill form, data from the form is saved to the user's computer. Thereafter, each time the Viewer encounters the same Smartfill data, the Viewer will offer to automatically complete that section of the form for the user.
Unfortunately, none of the three supported screen readers are able to fully read the Smartfill dialog boxes. Therefore, users with vision difficulties will be unaware what data is being provided by Smartfill. This could lead users to accidentally provide information that they do not want to share. In some cases, the lack of support from the screen readers may cause the users to be unable to proceed beyond the Smartfill dialog box to the form itself.
