Comments from some of those who selected Adobe Reader as one of their Top 10 Tools

“We take Acrobat for granted: but the ability to create, access, circulate and use e-books and other material without concern for platform, fonts etc. continues to be quite wonderful.”  Jerome Martin

“Adobe PDF Writer / Adobe Reader – Both of these are essential. Reader because a huge amount of information is now in PDF format – and it sorts out all those A4/Letter and other format issues – and Writer because it allows me to share information in a standard way.” Charles Jennings

“Educational content delivery is greatly simplified when one does not have to worry about the receiver’s ability to open it.   With .pdf, I know that students will be viewing my files precisely the way I want the content viewed”  Britt Watwood
