Accessibility Resources

The Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards ("Section 508 final rule"), National Federation of the Blind's Guidelines for Web Accessibility and the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines describe the elements of accessible web pages. Yahoo lists companies that provide assistive computer technology, including screen reading software.

Adobe Acrobat PDF Files

Many of the documents on the our Web site are in HTML or ASCII (plain text) formats. These formats are generally accessible to people who use screen readers. We also have documents in Adobe® Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF) that were tagged to be able to be read with accessibility resources and the READ OUT LOUD feature of the full version of Adobe Acrobat.

PDF format is used to preserve the content and layout of our hard copy publications. Publications in PDF can only be viewed and printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader™, version 4.0 or higher. You can download and get help using the Acrobat Reader at the Adobe Systems, Inc. site. The downloadable Acrobat Reader software is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe.

People using screen-reading devices may use the Adobe Acrobat Read Aloud System incorporated into the Adobe Acrobat Software directly in PDF format. If your current version of Adobe Acrobat doesn't have this feature, a plug-in is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe's accessibility tools and services, visit the Adobe Web site.

You may adjust your browser settings to disable these styles or override them with your own preferred font sizes, colors, and types. The use of style sheets is recommended for compliance. Older browsers cannot read style sheets. It is recommended that you upgrade your current browser with a FREE new browser. As well, not all browsers read and display the code the same.
