File Viewers

What are viewers and players (plug-ins)?

Some NYRAH web pages have links to files that may require software downloads--called “plug-ins”-- to help you properly view these files. Plug-ins are optional software additions that let you read Adobe PDF documents or view Excel spreadsheets, for example.

How do I get the plug-ins I need?

The plug-ins below can be downloaded for free and will enable you to view all of the file formats on the NYRAH website:
