About Adobe - Accessing and reading PDFs (Portable Document Format files)
This web site sometimes uses PDF (Portable Document Format) files, also known as Adobe files, for two reasons:
1. to make printed publications available the visitors to our internet site in a format that reproduces exactly the printed format of the original document
2. to make large reports and other documents easy to download so that they may be read later, either on screen or when printed.
Adobe (PDF) files are read using the (free) Adobe Reader. If you don't already have this application on your computer, it is available from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
Some of the PDF files on this site use internal links, like hyperlinks, to navigate through their pages. The links in these PDFs work just like the links on a web site. Once you have downloaded the file, you do not have to be online to navigate the publication.
Listening to information in PDFs
Some Adobe PDFs on this website can be automatically read out loud. First, you need sound on your computer and a recent version of Adobe Reader. Open the PDF document and select the ‘view’ option on the Adobe Reader toolbar. Then select the ‘read out loud’ command if available.
Other accessibility issues:
Adobe also contains its own screen reading features.
