    Default Embed Method [JavaScript]: Remove the default scrolling attribute from on this embed method.

    Asked by jacobward on May 25, 2017 at 11:06 AM

    The scrolling attribute on the iframes generated by the recommended embed script causes accessibility errors as it is a "presentational attribute." Additionally, the scrolling attribute is deprecated in HTML5 and the CSS equivalent of "scrolling=no", "overflow: hidden;" is already included in the generated iframes, rendering it unnecessary.

    Do note that the JavaScript embed code automatically generates the iFrame code, this cannot be customized; however, alternatively, you could get the iFrame code and you could remove the scrolling attribute, you could also add some code to the webpage to handle the iFrame scroll bars with CSS. 

    This guide will help you getting the iFrame code of your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-form-iFrame-code 

    I'm also forwarding this thread to our second level, we cannot provide an ETA, but we will let you know as soon as we get any update about it.

    We are fully aware of the iframe embed option. 

    The iframe code generated by the Jot Form Javascript can be improved by your programmers. That's what we're hoping to achieve with this request, that your recommended Javascript embed option will become fully compliant with Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 AA standards before January 2018 when enforcement will start to take affect.
