Adobe also offer other useful resources and tools to aid the accessibility of PDFs, these can be accessed via the Adobe Accessibility website, and include a text-only Adobe Reader download page and an online conversion tool for PDFs.

Online and downloadable (PDF) forms

A number of forms on this site are available for online completion and we will be adding to the number of online forms in the months ahead. The remainder are PDF forms on the site that are enabled for electronic completion. This means that you can save a copy of the form to a location you select on your computer, complete the form fields in Adobe Acrobat, print out a copy for your records and a copy to send, sign and return by post or in person to the address indicated on the form.

If you have a full version of Adobe Acrobat you can fill in the form electronically, save it and email the completed form to us as an attachment, to the email address included in the document. However, you can only save a completed form if you have the full version of Adobe.

If you prefer, you can print out the form, complete it by hand and return it by post or in person to the address on the form.
