Listening to information in PDFs
Some PDFs on this website can be automatically read out loud. You will need sound on your computer and a recent version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software. Then:
- Open the PDF document from this website
- Save it to your computer
- Open the 'View' menu (look at the top toolbar)
- Select 'Activate read out loud'.
Document links indicated by .doc or .docx should open using the word processing software you have on your computer (like Microsoft Word).
If you don't have any word processing software, you can download the free open source Libre Office software.
There are a few images on this website or within documents. The content of images is described using alt tags (alternative text) or captions.
If you still have problems with documents
If you are having problems with any documents, we can give you the information in another format.
For PDFs, tagged PDFs are more easily read when using adaptive technologies. If you find a PDF you are unable to read, you can ask us for a tagged version or we can give you the document in an alternative format.
To get an alternative version, contact us on 1300 650 172 and tell us which document you're having trouble with (local call fee within Victoria except mobile phones).
