Accessing PDF Files
A lot of Documents, Reports and Forms provided on this Portal are in the Portable Document Format (PDF).
Portable Document Format (PDF) is the published specification used by standards bodies around the world for more secure, reliable electronic document distribution and exchange. PDF documents can be shared, viewed, and printed by anyone, on any system, using free Adobe Reader software — regardless of the operating system, original application, or fonts.
To open a .PDF file you have two options. You can download the software ‘Adobe Acrobat Reader’ and install it onto your computer. The software is available free of charge from the Adobe Acrobat site and a link to download the same has been placed below.
The second option is to use an online .PDF conversion tool. Visit the Adobe Acrobat website (link to the relevant page given below), type in the address of a .PDF file and get it to translate the file into a more readable format while you wait. Or you can email the address of the file (or the file itself) to Adobe, and they will email a translation back. These translations of the files may not be as clearly formatted as the original PDF file.
Accessing Video Files
The video isTV-resolution(320x240 pixel) for Microsoft Media Player, using MPEG4 V2 compression. The high-fidelity stereo soundtrack and crisper video makes these files larger than the typical internet download. A high-speed internet connection (such as DSL or cable) is recommended.If you're using a dial-up modem, download time will be around 6 minutes per MB -- about 2 hours per video.
To play a video, click it with the LEFT mouse button.(After viewing, click "File" then "Save as..." in Windows Media Player to save the video on your hard drive.)
To download(rather than view) the video, position the mouse over the link, then click the RIGHT mouse button. Select "Save link as..." (Netscape) or "Save target as..." (Explorer), then select the directory where you want the video file.
(Netscape note: Some versions of Netscape may have a buggy FTP transfer plug-in that corrupts the file as it saves it on your hard drive. If you get an "Invalid File Type" when you try to load a video file using Media Player, you have this problem. Try downloading the file the opposite way -- if you left-clicked and got an error, then right-click and "Save as..." then open the saved file with Media Player.)
