Viewing Files in Different Formats Top


Several file formats are used on this site for presenting text, tables, and charts. Most are automatically resolved by your browser, but a few require separate, commonly-available software applications called viewers. You can either configure your browser to recognize and display these files or save the files to disk and view them later.

Viewers Top

To view Portable Document Format (.pdf) files: top

acrobat logoAdobe Systems Incorporated developed Adobe Acrobat Reader, a freely available viewer for files that conform to the Portable Document Format (.pdf). The Reader allows you to view, navigate, and print PDF files across all major computing platforms. The PDF files closely match the formatting of our printed reports.

Access.Adobe.Com is a tool that allows blind and visually impaired users to read any document in Adobe PDF format. The tool converts Web-based PDF files to HTML, which can then be read by common screen-reading programs. All you need is a Web browser. There are three options for using Access.adobe.com to convert PDF files into HTML: (1) by form submission, (2) by email, or (3) by an Acrobat for Windows plug in.

To view spreadsheet files: top

MS Excel logoIf you don't have Excel installed on your computer, you can use the Microsoft Excel Viewer (3,780K) to view and print Microsoft Excel for Windows (versions 2.0 and greater) and Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh (versions 2.2a and greater) spreadsheet files.

For additional, detailed information on how to view Excel spreadsheets, see our section on configuring your browser to access spreadsheet files.
