Trouble with video and multimedia interactives?

All video content works with Flash Player 7, and most media files are 20MB each with a streaming download.

Note: As of October 6, 2006. Some Macintosh computers may have trouble with the Play/Pause/Replay feature, and dragging through points in the movie. We are working to resolve this.

*Download the most recent Flash Player: Adobe Flash Player 9.


Is the text too small for you? Make it bigger!
To help Web visitors with trouble reading tiny text, this Web site was styled with CSS, and text graphics were kept to a minimum. In order to increase the font size of the content on this site, try the following. Navigate to the preferences or options of your Web browser. Search for 'font' or 'accessibility' options. You should be able to find an option that will allow you to override our styles with font styles and sizes of your own choosing. The layout of the website might get a little shuffled with very large fonts - but you should be able to at least read the text.
