You will have the option to view the document as a web page (HTML) or as plain text. Or, you can choose to have it emailed to you as an attachment.
Adobe provides information about accessibility and adobe products, and Acrobat Reader 7 has a number of accessibility features.
It will also read hyperlinks and menus, so navigation becomes simpler, as well as PDF documents (using Adobe Reader 7 or 8).
Text color and size
To make our pages easiest to read, we have used combinations of colors and font size that provide sufficient contrast.
We've designed the pages so that it should be possible for you to increase the size of the text using built-in controls on your browser.
For a description of a non-decorative image, hover the cursor over the image. This will display the 'alt' text description.
