Acrobat and .pdf Files

Many files on the Internet are in Acrobat Reader, or .pdf format. This allows the author to retain the look of the document and easily convert it to a web-viewable format. But documents in .pdf are not always accessible to people utilizing assistive technology.

Adobe provides a solution to this on their web site. To convert an Adobe® Portable Document Format (PDF) file to HTML, simply type a URL for an Adobe PDF document into their electronic form and select Get This Adobe PDF Document as HTML. The Adobe PDF document will be converted to HTML, and will be returned to you immediately in your browser application. There it can be read with a screen reader or translated into Braille or whatever you need in order to access the material.
