Blind Users Behaviour and Online Forms

Does anyone have any research or personal experience observing blind users 
using online forms with screen readers? Specifically, do blind users 
typically browse the form first, then fill in the fields, or do they just 
start at the top of the form and fill in the fields without browsing the 
page first. 

Assume the form is marked up properly for accessibility. Also assume users 
are told the number of steps in the form and any info they might need, 
before starting the form. 

Is their behaviour any different from sighted users, due to the fact blind 
users are using a screen reader?
