Topic: Passing commands to viewer from html

I use the pdf viewer (more specifically the netscape browser plugin) as part of a document management touchscreen installation. The main problem with this is that the zoom, hand tool, and the buttons to advance the pages are quite small and can require multiple touches by the user to successfully select them. The installation is specifically used to open documents on demand, and currently this is slowest element of it, and requires a mouse to be connected as a back-up.
My question is if anyone knows of a plugin, or any method, which enables commands, like selecting the zoom or hand tool, to be passed to the pdf viewer from html, or specifically a html document in an adjacent frame?
The current set-up I use is acrobat viewer 4, with netscape 6, as it is the fastest and most stable combination. IE is out of the question because of the delay it introduces into opening extremely large pdf's with raster imaging and vector data combined. Acrobat 6 looks better, and the toolbar buttons are slightly bigger, but it seems to have stability issues when used in conjunction with netscape.
Any help is appeciated.
