Many documents on this website are in "Portable Document Format" or PDF.
We try to use ordinary web pages for the majority of the content, but sometimes we need to use this other format. Often PDF is a cost-effective way to distribute long reports or documents which may have complex formatting.
To be able to read the content of a PDF document, you will need to use a special reader. Many people already have a reader installed on their computer. We provide a link to the free Adobe Acrobat Reader for your convenience.
Adobe Reader includes an option which will read a page or a whole document out loud. Open a document in Reader, then go to the 'View' menu and select from the options available.
