Adobe Acrobat's portable
document format (PDF) files are widely used on the Web because they preserve the
original appearance of the printed document. To access these files, you must have
the Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, configured to
work with your browser. When viewed or printed in the Acrobat Reader, the document
appears as it does in the hard copy version.
Many PDF documents contain bookmarks to the major sections.
If the bookmarks are not visible when you open the file,
select the bookmark button
in the Button Bar of the Acrobat Reader. Just click a bookmark to jump to
the corresponding topic or section in the document. To view sub-topic bookmarks,
click the triangle icon at the left of a bookmark.
If you do not have the Acrobat Reader, you may download a
free copy from Adobe.
Information for those who have problems opening PDF files

first download them to their computer and then open them as they would any document.

2. From the popup menu, select Save Link As (Netscape) or Save Target As (Internet
3. Select the location where you want to save the file then select Save.
4. Open Acrobat Reader, choose open from the file menu, locate the file, and select
links to a set of tools that allow blind and visually impaired individuals
to read any document in Adobe PDF. The tools convert PDF documents into simple
HTML or ASCII text that can then be read by a number of common screen reading
programs that synthesize the HTML as audible speech.
