There are a variety of questionnaire form options people use, such as Google Forms or and Qualtrics. The three main aspects to accessible form questionnaires;
- technical code behind the scenes,
- the actual content of the questions,
- and the visual design.
Optional form widgets are available for text, multiple-choice, and more. Some of these form widgets are more accessible than others. Below are links to some resources that explain which widgets have the potential to be accessible.

It is possible to use an accessible widget, but ask a question in a way that does not make sense. An example would be, "Rate your opinion on a scale of 1 to 5". The problem with this is that there are no instructions indicating which is best. It is 1 best or is 5 best.
All other WCAG rules apply, like ensuring links have descriptive names.
Most questionnaires provide the option of choosing theme colors. Choose a theme that has easy to read text with a high contrast ratio.
