The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) is committed to making its information resources accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d).

Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. Section 508 standards are  technical requirements that are used to measure compliance within this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at www.section508.gov.

If you require assistance or would like to report an issue related to the accessibility of any content on this website, please email susannah.harris@state.co.us. If applicable, please include the web address or URL and the specific problems you have encountered.


Adobe Acrobat Files

Much of the content on CEO's site is in HTML or plain text formats. These formats are generally accessible to people who use screen readers. We also have a large number of documents in Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF).

Publications in PDF can only be viewed and printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader®, version 3.0 or higher. You can download and get help using the Acrobat Reader at the Adobe Systems site. The downloadable Acrobat Reader software is available at no cost from Adobe.

People using screen-reading devices generally are unable to read documents directly in PDF format, unless they have an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This plug-in is available at no cost from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe’s accessibility tools and services, visit the Access Adobe website.


PowerPoint & Word Files

You can view documents in Microsoft PowerPoint® format if you have any version of PowerPoint installed on your computer. For those who don’t have the software, Microsoft Corporation offers a free PowerPoint file viewer. You can download and get help using the PowerPoint viewer at the Microsoft Download Center.

You can view documents in Microsoft Word® format if you have Word, version 6.0 or higher, installed on your computer. Word documents can also be viewed with many other word processing software programs. Additionally, Microsoft offers a free Word file viewer that you can download from the Microsoft Download Center.
