Web Content Accessibility

The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) is strongly committed to improved accessibility for all.

Viewing PDFs on our Website

This web site contains links to PDF documents that require the most current version of Adobe Reader to view. The Adobe Acrobat Reader may already be installed on your computer as a “plug-in” or “helper application” for your web browser. To find out, click on the “PDF” link for the document you are interested in. If the Adobe Acrobat Reader is properly installed on your computer, the Reader will either download or automatically open a PDF copy of the document, depending on your browser and how it is configured. If the Adobe Acrobat Reader is not installed on your computer, it can be found, free of charge, at the Adobe Acrobat Reader download page.

If you are using a screen reader, you may find it will not read some documents in PDF format. Adobe provides a website that will convert non-accessible PDF files to a format that is useable with a screen reader. The Adobe Access site is located at, and the tool can also be added to your computer as a “plug-in”.
