Using this site

printer friendly version

  Virginia College Quest has been designed to provide full accessibility. Most documents are provided in several formats including a “printer friendly” HTML version, a MS WORD version and a Portable Document (PDF) version.

In addition, the site is “speech enabled” using Browsaloud software. Here is more information on using these features:

Using PDF documents

It's easy to download the documents we have provided in Portable Document Format (PDF). You can view them on your screen or print your own paper copies. For best results and maximum accessibility, please use the latest version (6.0) of Acrobat Reader. It is available FREE at the page below.

  • If you already have the Acrobat Reader, simply click the link to the PDF file. The Acrobat Reader program will open the document.
  • If you need to print the document or form, click the Acrobat Reader's "Print" button. (Do NOT use your web browser's "Print" command.) Your printed copy will have the same formatting as the original document.
  • If you need to download the free Acrobat Reader software, visit the "Download Adobe Acrobat Reader” page and follow the steps outlined.

If you are using a screen reader and are blind or visually impaired, you may download the Adobe Access plug-in at no charge. This program allows you to convert a PDF file to a simple HTML or ASCII text file which is accessible to most screen readers.

Using browsealoud software

Free to download, easy to use with control over the voice, pitch and speed, browsealoud reads the text that you require with the hover of a mouse. Simply by scrolling your mouse over the text that you want read to you, browsealoud will read and speak what you require, helping you navigate websites more easily.

browsealoud is a Windows application and can be used with Internet Explorer 4 upwards or Netscape Navigator. To download and install browsealoud, visit the “browsealoud downloads” page and follow the steps outlined.
