I need a way to fillin forms in PDF

I would like to fill in the forms I have in PDF as my hand writing is not very good (a teacher said it looked like a spider had crossed the page ) so it would be helpfully if I could fill them in using my PC.
I also have a scanner that turns the scans into PDF and they have a way to fill them in but I am looking for a cheaper options .

I use the free version of Foxit Reader as my PDF reader. Recently I had to download a form in PDF format to fill out and I found out I could type information in the blocks using this reader. Go to drop down menu for tools and under typewriter tools, select typewriter tools. You can then type in the form and save it and print.
Just google foxit and get the free version.
Hope this helps.

Just remember that not all PDF files are built to be completed electronically, so these will never facilitate 'online' completion using your keyboard. With the latest iE8 security scare regards PDF's in browser sessions, quite honestly I'd be rather careful about completing any form fields...

Agree with you on the "online" completion of the forms. I had assumed he meant filling out forms he had on file (downloaded and saved) or had scanned. I one I mentioned, I did download the form, saved it and then used Foxit to fill in the blocks.
