Much of the detailed information is in pdf format to allow easy reading for those using a screen reader.

If you need the latest Adobe Reader click here for the Adobe website: the Adobe site will open in a new window; close the window when you have completed the download to return to this site.

To set Adobe Reader to open in its own window for PDF documents on the web follow these three steps:

Open Adobe Reader, then open the Help menu, and then select Accessibility Setup Assistant

Proceed through each dialogue box and click Next until you get to the fifth screen. On screen five the very last option is called Display PDF Documents In the Web Browser. You should make sure this option is not checked.

Adobe publish the above guidance together with other guidance on customising Adobe to suit you on their page Customizing Adobe Reader for your accessibility needs
