Download Viewers and Players
What are viewers and players (plug-ins)?
Some HealthyPeople.gov Web pages have links to files that may require software downloads-called “plug-ins”—to help you properly view or play these files. Plug-ins are optional software additions that let you watch Internet movies and animation, hear sound and music, and read special Adobe documents, 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 or play all of the file formats on HealthyPeople.gov’s Web site.
