Requirements (digital edition)/Readme

In order to read the glossary and watch the movie clips you need to have the following programs installed on your system:

Other programs may work but the glossary has mostly been tested with the products mentioned above. If you have to use a different media player make sure that it is capable of decoding MPEG-4 video and audio (AAC). On Linux based systems the Totem Video-Player with the libavcodec library should do the trick.

If you are using Acrobat Reader 9.0 or better you need to set "View documents in PDF/A mode" to "Never" for this document to be displayed properly and for the cross document links to work (Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Adobe Reader > Preferences (Mac OS) Documents). (Obsolete since version 1.2)

You may also want to uncheck the "Open cross-document links in same window"-box in order to be able to view the glossary and illustrations at the same time and to avoid having to re-open the main file after closing a linked document (Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Adobe Reader > Preferences (Mac OS) > Documents).

Depending on your security settings the following warning message might be displayed when you try to open linked content:

"The file and its viewer application are set to be launched by this PDF file. The file may contain programs, macros, or viruses that could potentially harm your computer. Only open the file of you are sure it is safe. If this file was placed by a trusted person or program, you can click 'Open' to view the file."

Which is exactly what you should do.

To use the glossary simply open "START.PDF" or proceed directly to the English ("SYNTAX.PDF") or French version ("GLOSSAIRE.PDF").
