    Adobe Acrobat support
    PDF file standards have improved over the years and have become more accessible through technologies like screen readers, navigation through the keyboard and enhanced screen viewing (the Adobe site provides information on how best to use these features). You may come across earlier versions of PDF files which are not so accessible.

    If you use screen reader software (for example an audio-enabled web browser) which is not compatible with Adobe Reader, Adobe provide a free online tool which converts the content of PDF files to a format which can be understood by most screen reader applications.

    You can configure your web browser to open PDF files either within the browser window or in a separate Adobe Acrobat window. There are detailed instructions on the Acrobat website on how to do so for different browsers.

 

File sizes

 

We also endeavour to ensure that the size of "downloadable" documents, such as Word and Adobe Acrobat PDFs, are no more than 500kb. Documents over this size are clearly indicated.

 

Images

 

All images on this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Those in purely decorative graphics or used for layout include null ALT attributes.
