What is a PDF file?
PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It's a distribution
format developed by Adobe Corporation to
allow electronic information to be transferred between various types of
computers. The software which allows this transfer is called Acrobat. In order
to view and print a PDF file you will first need to download and install a
copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Access.Adobe.Com is a tool that allows blind and visually
impaired users to read any document in Adobe PDF format. The tool converts PDF
documents into simple HTML or ASCII text which can then be read by a number of
common screen reading programs that synthesize the HTML as audible speech. If
you are using a screen reader, download the Access plug-in as well. The Adobe
Access plugin is located at http://access.adobe.com.
