Viewing/Listening to PDFs
Some of our information is available as a pdf for downloading. Most of these documents are in PDF format which means they can only be viewed using Adobe Reader.

Read Out Loud
The latest version of Adobe Reader comes with the ability to 'read' the PDF content to you. This function is known as 'Read Out Loud' and can be accessed as follows: With the PDF you want read to you open in Adobe Reader version 6 or later, go to the 'View' menu and select 'Read Out Loud', you will then have the option to 'Read This Page Only' or 'Read To End Of Document'.
