Access for visually impaired visitors to our website
If you are visually impaired you can get some software from Adobe to help you to read Adobe Acrobatdocuments (PDFs). Go to http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/alternate.html to download the free software.
Once the software is installed, you need to turn off your web browser integration. To do this open Acrobat Reader, go to file > preferences > general and turn off the web browser integration.
Once you have done this, when you download a pdf file all you have to do is go to view > Acrobat access choices click on access view only, or as a shortcut, use ctrl 4.
The text in the PDF will be changed into a format your software can read.
