PDF documents

There are many reports and publications in Adobe PDF format on this web site. PDF documents can only be opened using the Adobe Acrobat Reader®. It is recommended you use the most recent version. You can download and get help using the Acrobat Reader® at the Adobe website. The downloadable Acrobat Reader® software is available at NO CHARGE.

How to have a PDF read aloud

For nonvisual access it is recommended that you download the PDF document to your personal computer. Open the document in Adobe Acrobat Reader® and navigate to the document page you want to have read aloud. From the top left menu, click View, then Read Out Loud. You can choose to have the whole document read aloud or just the page you’re on. Select either Read to End of Document or Read This Page Only, respectively.

At any point, you can also choose from several options to customize the experience of having your PDFs read out loud:

  • To pause or stop the read-out-loud function, go back to the Read Out Loud selection from the View dropdown menu and select either option.
  • To choose your preferred reader voice, go to the top right menu and hit Edit, then Preferences, choose Reading, remove the checkmark on Use Default Voice, and finally choose the narration voice you like from the dropdown list.
  • To adjust the pace of the reading, either increase the Words Per Minute count or lower it, depending on your needs.

How to zoom in your screen

Some people like to zoom into the screen or web browser in order to see things better. Here are a few ways of doing it depending on your setup:

  • On Windows, press the Windows key and plus sign (+) at the same time to zoom in. You can also use the “Magnifier” application under “Accessories”.
  • On Mac, go to “System Preferences”, open “Universal Access” and select the “Seeing” tab. Check the box under “Zoom” to “On”.
  • On your Apple device, tap “Settings”, then “General”, then “Accessibility”. Tap the “Zoom” button and toggle it “On”.
  • Another trick is to use “Ctrl” (“Cmd” on Mac) plus the plus (+) or minus (-) keys when you’re in a web browser.

How to change the colors or fonts on the page

Some people like to change colors or fonts to see words more clearly. Most major web browsers have options to do this:

  • In Internet Explorer, go to “Tools”, then “Internet Options”, on to “General”. From here, select “Colors, Fonts, or Accessibility”.
  • In Mozilla Firefox, choose “Options”, then “Content”, then finally “Fonts & Colors”.
  • In Safari, select “Preferences”, “Appearance” tab, and then hit the “Select…” button next to the font fields.
  • In Chrome, go to “Preferences”, activate the “Show advanced settings” link, go to the “Web content” heading and change the “Font size”, “Customize fonts” in other ways, or set default “Page zoom”.

We recommend a mixture of settings like enlarging font size and zooming into the browser for a better experience.

How to find and use a screen reader

Screen readers are text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content. We strive to ensure that our content is accessible to screen readers.

There are many options available. Please refer to American Foundation for the Blind for a list.

How to use accessibility tools on mobile

iOS and Android provide many tools to help you access websites. VoiceOver for iOS and TalkBack for Android are the screen readers that come built-in. To turn on VoiceOver, go to “Settings”, then “Accessibility”, and then turn on “VoiceOver”. You can set the “Accessibility Shortcut” to “VoiceOver” from the “Accessibility” page in order to triple-click the “Home” button to toggle VoiceOver on and off. TalkBack has a similar feature.

“Zoom”, “Magnifier”, “Invert Colors”, “Color Filters”, and “Reduce White Point” are other features and tools on iOS that you can use. These are also available through the “Accessibility Shortcut”.
