Help for Visitors with Visual Impairments


Starting in September 2007, we are striving to make all newly added information (reports* and documents) available in accessible text format. These files are formatted to be accessible to users with visual impairments using a text-only browser or a screen reader. We have attempted to maintain the structural and data integrity of the original printed product. However, these may not exactly duplicate the printed version.


In some cases, we may include both PDF and web accessible versions of the same document on our website.


For older reports and documents, only PDF versions may be available.


* Even if an Audit Report is only available in PDF format, the Digest (summary of the report) is available in accessible text format (HTM) for all reports released after September 2007.


Help with Reading Portable Document Format Files


Audit reports, the Legislative Travel Guide, and many historical documents (posted on the website prior to September 2007) on this site are in Portable Document Format (PDF). These documents ensure that you will be able to obtain publications in their original format, regardless of what type of computer, browser, or operating system you use to access the Internet. In order to view, navigate through and print PDF documents, you must first download the free Acrobat Reader software .


Tools to convert PDF documents to HTML or text, improving accessibility for users who are blind or otherwise visually impaired, are also available at the Adobe Web site .
