  • ProQuest: Much of the content within ProQuest is available in PDF format. Links will open in a new window on your computer to view documents in PDF format. Some PDFs have been created from scanned text and are therefore accessible to screen readers. However, a large proportion of older content, as well as content provided by third-party publishers, was created from scanned images of original text. Text in the images is not accessible to screen readers. This content is identified with the label 'Scanned image PDF.' The label appears on links and page headers where appropriate.
