Information for those who have trouble opening PDF files
Sometimes our visitors find it easier to open PDF files if they first download them to their computer and then open them as they would any document. If you have not tried this already, you may want to see if these four steps work for you:
1. Right-click (Windows) or click and hold (Macintosh) on the pdf file.
2. From the popup menu, select Save Link As (Netscape) or Save Target As (Internet Explorer).
3. Select the location where you want to save the file then select Save.
4. Open Acrobat Reader, choose open from the file menu, locate the file, and select open.
Attention blind and visually impaired visitors:
Adobe Reader is a tool that allows blind and visually impaired users to read any document in Adobe PDF format. The tool converts PDF documents into simple HTML or ASCII text that can then be read by a number of common screen reading programs that synthesize the HTML as audible speech.
If you prefer to order printed copies of publications, return to the ordering information for the publication of choice.
