Using this Web site

Window size
It's a good idea to maximize the window of your Web browser (enlarge it to the full size of your screen) for long articles, as this permits you to read them with less scrolling.

If your computer can play .WAV sound files, click the [speaker] icon to hear sounds.

Hard copy
If you are interested in reading an article at your leisure, don't forget that most Web browsers allow you to print out and/or save to disk anything you see on the World Wide Web. Many readers still find hard copy easier for extended reading.

On many Web browsers, you can choose Print or Save As from the File menu.
