    What do all the buttons mean?

    1) Presentation Controls

To stop the program, use the "STOP" button. Clicking "PLAY" after the "STOP" button will start the seminar section from the beginning.

    2) Volume Control

    Adjust the volume by clicking on the "+" to increase volume and "-" to decrease volume.

    3) Navigation

    In addition to using the "PLAY" button to begin the program, you may also choose to view specific sections -- and even specific slides within a section. The Table of Contents button provides a drop-down list of all of the program's contents including hyperlinks to individual slides.

    The "film strip" at the bottom of the main screen is another navigation feature, this one designed to allow you to jump back or forward by a just a slide or two. This feature will come in handy if you are interrupted, want to review instruction you just heard, or perhaps wish to skip forward.

    The Seminar can take time to load initially depending on your computer's speed. If, after you have waited for up to a minute for the initial slide to begin, nothing happens, you may need to download the latest versions of Windows Media Player.
