PDF Files

Many of our documents are available in PDF format. Version 6.0 of Adobe Reader, formerly called Acrobat Reader, now includes a built in Read Out Loud option.

Reader 6.0 synthesizes the text in Adobe PDF files into speech, using a regular Windows or Macintosh computer, so anyone can read basic Adobe PDF text files aloud, even without a screen reader. For more information about this new feature please read Adobe Acrobat 6.0 and Accessibility.

The Read Out Loud Option can be accessed by using the following key board short cuts:

  • View single page – Shift + Ctrl + V
  • Read entire document – Shift + Ctrl + B

The Read Out Loud Option in Reader seems to work better with PDF files than most screen readers.
