Can I create a PDF with signature field that can be sent out by someone who doesn't have Acrobat Pro

I got Acrobat Pro so I can update some business forms to have people sign electronically. I created it and it works great for me. There are a few others who may need to send this form out to people to sign. But I can't see a way for them to send the form out for a signature unless they have Acrobat Pro as well. Is there a way for them to do it by only having the free Reader version?

How would they do that? The only option I can see for the signature field is to select the Request E-Signature option, which is only available in the Acrobat Pro version.

Use the "Request E-Signatures" tool in Acrobat. The user will recieve an email that links to a webpage where they can sign the form. All without any PDF viewers.  It's all done through the web.
