PDF files
Many of the PDF documents available on our website have been created using later versions of Adobe Acrobat, either version 6.0 or the newly released 7.0. If you have difficulties opening our documents, this may be because you have an older version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your pc. 
 
The latest version, version 8.0, can be downloaded free from the Adobe website (http://www.adobe.com).
 
Adobe can also help you access content using assistive technologies such as screen readers or screen magnifiers. You can link to the Access Adobe website for information on making these documents accessible.
