Many of the documents and forms on this website are in “.pdf” or Portable Document Format.

To view or print some of the documents and forms on this web site, you'll need "Acrobat Reader7" software from Adobe, Inc. or an equivalent “.pdf” reader, installed on your computer. If you don't have a “.pdf” reader, Adobe Acrobat Reader is available for downloading free from the Adobe web site at: http://www.adobe.com where you click on the "Get Acrobat Reader" button to reach the page with instructions for downloading and installing.

Acrobat Reader allows you to view and print documents prepared in ‘.pdf’ Portable Document Format. Adobe has complete downloading and installation instructions on their web site. For some documents, you may need to have version 4.0 or higher. We recommend all users update their Adobe Acrobat software to the newest version available from Adobe.

Acrobat Reader version 6.0 contains improved features for assistive technology software. If your version is older, you may want to download and install a newer version. Also, Adobe has information about various tools that can help make “.pdf” documents accessible. See: http://access.adobe.com/.
