Introduction

We are committed to a website that is accessible to all our users.

We review the site regularly and amend pages that may cause problems for people with disabilities.

We aim to meet or exceed the provisions of the W3C/WAI Level 'AA' checklist.

Plain English

All of our content is checked for plain English, and we aim to use a written style which is straightforward and understandable

PDFs

The downloadable documents on this site are in Portable Document Format (often referred to as PDF).

How can I open and view a PDF document?

In order to view a PDF document, you need free software called Adobe Acrobat Reader, created by the company called Adobe. However PDFs are not easily accessible to all users so Adobe has developed a method of converting PDF documents into HTML (normal web pages), a more accessible format for assistive technologies.

How do I convert a PDF document into HTML?

The URL (the web address) of a PDF document will appear in the web browser address bar when it is selected. Copy the url (normally looks like this: http://www.daargroup.com... or http://www.aittv.co.uk .. ) and then visit Adobe's website on the link below.

Online conversion tools for Adobe PDF documents

Once you have clicked on the link above, you will see an online form created by Adobe. Simply paste the URL into the box you will see and the contents of the PDF will be automatically converted to HTML - an ordinary web page; and in that form it should then be accessible.

There are further features and capabilities of Adobe products that enhance electronic document accessibility for people with disabilities such as blindness, low vision, and motor impairments. You can visit their website using the link below, where you will find this information and links to resources that help people with disabilities work more effectively with Adobe software.
