Adobe Acrobat PDF format

Most of our PDF files published on our website after January 2010 have been tagged to allow basic accessibility; previous PDFs will be tagged as resources allow. If you have a particular request for a PDF to be optimised for accessibility then please contact the web team.

PDF files can be read using Adobe Reader software, which is available for many different computer systems including Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Palm. Visit the Adobe website to obtain the Adobe Reader software.

For more information about PDF accessibility see the Adobe website accessibility section.

Microsoft documents and spreadsheets can still be read even if you have not bought the commercial Word and Excel programs. Microsoft offer a range of free 'viewer' programs for download; however, these programs are only available for Windows systems. Word and Excel viewers are available from the Microsoft website.
