Adobe Reader 9.3.4

Free
The Adobe's official software tool for viewing and reading their native PDFs

Adobe Systems created the popular Portable Document Format back in 1993 for the sole purpose of allowing for document exchange without running the risk of losing the original layout of the document. Adobe Reader is the official reading tool developed to view, print and manage PDFs.

Today, most online forms sent to us for completion come as PDFs. Adobe Reader will allow you to fill in those forms, as well as print them out, provided the security settings assigned to the document allow for it. In earlier versions, you did not have the option of creating a PDF file using Adobe Reader – you need to purchase Acrobat for that. With this latest version, you have a menu option that takes you directly to Acrobat.com, a web-based service that allows you to create up to five PDF files free of charge.

With Adobe Reader, you can easily add your own input into a PDF document by adding annotations with the help of the comment and mark-up tools bundled with it. Besides, you can also approve or reject a PDF file whenever you are asked to, and ensure the security of the document by signing or certifying it with a Digital ID. This will add extra security and validity to it when transferred through the Internet.

Regarding the Accessibility options, Adobe Reader allows you to use either a screen magnifier or a screen reader to access the content of the document, provided it has been correctly tagged.
