Software Demos

These are web-based 'walk-throughs' in a slide show-like format. Demos offers a broad overview of the software or a software feature. Tutorials focus on a specific function or procedure. All shows will proceed from screen to screen automatically, unless input is specifically requested from you. To launch a demo or tutorial, click the logo for the format you wish to view (Read the next paragraph for the pros and cons of the formats.) You'll have the option to jump to specific pages or exit the show at any time. All demos and tutorials will launch in a new window. To exit the show, simply close the window in which the show is running. These shows require a monitor of at least 600x800 resolution. There are three formats available. You may want to try several formats to see with which you have the best results.

  • The Java demos require Java to have been installed and enabled within your browser. Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, or Firefox browsers are recommended for viewing the Java demos. The Java file is quite small.
  • Windows Media files are also quite small. They are viewable on Windows systems only, but may be viewable when the Java version is not. The Windows Media format is also recommended for systems with smaller monitors. Windows Media Player version 7 or later is required.
  • Flash is supported on many operating systems, but it does require a Flash-plug-in and the file size is somewhat larger (which may be a consideration for those using a dial-up connection).
  • For the Java and Flash shows, depending upon your internet security configuration, you may be told that "Active content has been blocked". You must "Allow the blocked content" in order to view the show.
