To be able to view our courses your system needs at least 64 Mb of RAM and must be equipped with audio hardware (sound card) and speakers or headphones/headset. To better view our website your screen resolution settings should be 800 x 600 pixels.

You also need to keep the option "enable JavaScript" selected in your browser's preferences.

If you have CompuServe, AmericaOnLine, or @Home you should not use the browser embedded in their software, but rather use an external Internet browser.
