What hardware and software do I need?

You will need a printer to print out information on paper. Check that the printer is switched on. Does your computer have speakers? Switch them on, because there are also audio clips on the site.

Check that the website works properly on your computer. If it doesn’t, then see the tips below. If you need to, ask someone who knows about these things to help.

Tips if the website doesn’t work properly

Can’t play the audio and video clips? You need a separate program for this: Quicktime. You can download it free at www.apple.com/quicktime/download/. You can do this without filling in any personal details. If you’re working on someone’s else’s computer, ask first if it’s all right to download the program.
  • Do you have to wait a long time for images or audio files to load? Then you need a faster internet connection: ISDN is the minimum you need, but cable or ASDL is better.
  • Some documents are in PDF file format. You can open these by clicking on them. Doesn’t it work? Then you need to install Acrobat Reader on your computer. You can download it free at http://www.adobe.nl/products/acrobat/readstep.html. If you’re working on someone’s else’s computer, ask first if it’s all right to download the program.
  • Want to make a photo bigger or smaller? Then you need special photo editing software, such as Microsoft Photo Editor.
  • The website works best with a screen resolution of 800 x 600 and with the following browsers:
    • Windows 2000, XP: Internet Explorer 5.5, 6.0, Netscape 7.0
    • Windows 2000, XP, Mac OS 9,OS X, Linux: Mozilla 1.4, Firefox 0.9, Netscape 7.0
    • Mac OS X: Safari 1.1
