Tagged form fields failed Accessibility checker options
Form fields tags aren't exporting properly for tagged pdfs in the newest Indesign 2018 (13.0.1). The tags won't show up in the file therefore not allowing the pdfs to pass the accessibility checker. There are no issues when exporting as tagged pdf from the 2017 CC.
I am frustrated with recognition for fields export from 2018 to pdf. I have been avoiding using 2018 for this reason. When you talk to Adobe you have to speak to an indesign specialist or a Adobe Acrobat specialist and neither one knows the other program!!! The Adobe expert tells me how to fix it in Acrobat, which I don't care! The Indesign expert says I am doing it correctly and it should work!! Arrrh!!!!
I will keep using 2017 until this issue is dealt with!
If you create new files and add your fields, radio buttons and checkboxes. Everything exports no problem.
I am still have these issues with old files. Not much you can do if the programs are not working properly.
Just your best effort is required.
I'm having the same Issue in Indesign 14.0.3. Form fields created in InDesign are working correctly (able to be filled out in the interactive PDF) but aren't passing the accessibility checker in Acrobat. Text fields are getting an "Tagged Form Fields" error and radio buttons and check boxes are getting a "Tagged Annotation" error.

Not seeing this problem with versions 13.1 (CC:2018), and 14.0 and 14.1 (CC:2019).

This is exactly my problem, thought they fixed it, the text field seem to work now BUT the radio buttons get an error "Tagged annotations".
I also got the same response when I called Adobe, I want to have it work from Indesign, don't care how to fix it in Acrobat!!
I am also going back to using 2017 until this issue is dealt with!!!!
