I've become a big fan of sending PDF's to for e-mail
conversion. You can first download the file, then either use the web form
at or e-mail the document to
You can get the document back in any of several formats including braille
and Word.

In Adobe Reader X bring up the preferences (Edit->Preferences), then
on the Internet page make sure "Display PDF in browser" is not

The layout might be slightly different with other versions but I
believe this particular setting has been fairly stable so it shouldn't
be too hard to find.

when clicking a link on the web, this sometimes works out but other
times I can't read the document at all, I just can't get it focused or
something. Does anyone have an idea of a setting or something to make
pdf's open in adobe reader by default and not in internet explorer? Or
alternativly do you know of any other pdf reader I can use?
