Accessible PDF Reader PDF files are great for printing but they can be really difficult to use if you want them read out to you or you want to change the colours and fonts used. Many people, such as people with dyslexia, find it easier to work with text when it is spoken aloud or has different colours or contrast.
Accessible PDF is a free program from Claro Software that lets you read PDFs with the colours and fonts you want and makes it easy to read the text aloud with other programs such as ClaroRead. You can zoom in and out, use high- or low-contrast colours, and save your PDF as text or a web page for future use. You can even follow internal contents links to let you navigate the document.
Based on the PDFTOHTML program, which in turn uses the XPDF program from Foo labs, Accessible PDF is free open-source software released under the GNU Public Licence version 3, so you can use it for free for business and personal use.
Download the Accessible PDF Installer (Windows 2000, XP or Vista) Accessible PDF Source Code (Zip file) Here is Accessible PDF having opened a PDF file. The colours have been adjusted to a low-contrast combination that can help some people with reading problems. The font selection shows how you can pick any size or font that suits you.
