RE: need help with a pdf file

John, does this program do a  better job than AR's on-the-fly
conversion?  For me, the real boon would be a package that could easily
and inexpensively convert documents to PDF.  Microsoft promised
integration as an option in the "Save as" menu six years ago; I'm still
waiting.

Hello Troy,
There is a cool program on the blind programming site called pdf to txt.
It
is free and pretty efficient. You could email me the file and I will
convert
it using a different program if you want.
Take care,
John

How can I save it as a text file?  I'd rather do that because I never
have 
gotten used to reading in Adobe.

Hi Troy.  Did you try downloading the file, then immediately saving it
as a
text?  If you try that you might be able to read it.  Or just email the
station for a copy of the schedule.
