    If users do not have their browser js enabled, what option do you suggest for embedding your forms?  We're looking at developing a form that would require compliance with Section 508, and initial tests have indicated that the form won't process fully if the browser is not enabled.  (Testing in IE 8 and Firefox 3.6.8)

    Much appreciation as always in advance. - Dajana

    Can you send me the URL of the form? I will see what can be done to make it work when JavaScripts are disabled.

    http://www.jotform.com/form/2075046230 - this was the clone form created for testing purposes.  

    FYI: The web developer(s) working on the rest of the website that the form in question would ultimately be embedded within/housed on indicated that: The biggest concerns I have from a Section 508 standpoint are the CAPTCHA feature (which it appears can be disabled) and the Paypal API needing javascript to function.

    As always, your help is greatly appreciated!  - Dajana

    I think you should just remove the CAPTCHA from your form. 

    The javascript is needed on the PayPal so that the total can be calculated. You can make forms with single questions so no javascript would be needed.

    Thanks - will try those changes and see if that resolves the scripting/compliance issue.  

    Thanks again - Dajana
