Adobe Acrobat PDF Files

Many of the documents on this website are in Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF). These were created at various times by any of numerous agencies and organizations. Some of the older documents were created without readable text. As we have identified these, we have processed them with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to make them legible by screen readers and replaced them in our library. If you find a document that lacks readable text, please let us know and we will perform OCR processing on it.

Publications in PDF format can best be viewed and printed by using Adobe Acrobat Reader® software. The latest version of Acrobat Reader software is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe by downloading it from the Adobe website. It has integrated accessibility tools and features, including a screen reader, that can be used without downloading a separate plug-in. To get the latest information about Adobe's accessibility tools and services, visit the Access Adobe website.
