There are three e-mail options you can use to convert Adobe PDF documents to a format that is more accessible to screen reading software. The e-mail address you use depends on the conversion format you want, plain (ASCII) text or HTML, and whether the PDF is on the Internet or local media.
If the Adobe PDF file is on the Internet, you can mail the URL (Web address) of the PDF file in the body of an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org
(for plain text) or to email@example.com
(for HTML). The convertor will mail back the translation of the PDF file. You can submit multiple URLs in a single e-mail. Tip: Some URLs are very long and cumbersome to type. Cutting and pasting the URL into the mail message will save you some keystrokes.
If the Adobe PDF file is on local media, such as a hard drive, CD-ROM, or internal server, it can be submitted as a MIME attachment to an e-mail message. All converted Adobe PDF documents will be sent back to the sender as MIME attachments. For plain text, mail the attached PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org
. For HTML, mail the attached PDF to email@example.com
A service hosted by Trace Research Center also allows you to convert Adobe PDF documents.
You can either mail the URL of the Adobe PDF or attach the Adobe PDF document itself to your e-mail message and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
(for plain text) or to email@example.com
(for HTML). The convertor will mail back the translation of the PDF file.
