Some files say I need Adobe Acrobat Reader to use them. What is that?
Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® is free software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF identified by symbol) files. PDF is a universal file format
that preserves all the fonts, formatting, graphics, and color of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. You can
download Adobe Acrobat Reader from Adobe's Web site.
If you use the full version of Adobe™ Acrobat®, you might find that documents appear with errors on the screen. You will need to download the update files from Adobe
or download files and open them from your hard drive or network. Documents should print without a problem.
What is Section 508 and how does it affect my use of the site?
Section 508 requires that when federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology, federal
employees with disabilities must have comparable access to and use of information and data as federal employees who have no disabilities, unless an undue burden would be
imposed on the agency. Section 508 also requires that individuals with disabilities who are members of the public seeking information or services from a federal agency
have comparable access to and use of information and data as the public without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.
How do I watch videos?
To view videos, you need to have a media player installed on your computer. If you have a newer computer, your machine probably came with a media player installed. If you
don't have one installed, you can download a media player for free. Videos may be available in several formats: Windows Media Player, QuickTime, or RealPlayer. Click one
of the links below to download the media player file you want.
I got an error message when I filled out a form. What do I do?
