Can’t get the videos to play?
First, read about the different type of videos that are available on this site:
If you have trouble playing these video or sound clips, make sure that you have the latest version of Quicktime. Older versions of Quicktime will not play many of the videos.
Alternatively, download a movie file and try playing it from your computer’s hard drive. To download a movie from a Windows computer, right click on the link and select Save Target As…. Macintosh users should press the Option (or Alt) key and click on the link.
This site has been tested with the Lynx 2.8.5 text-only web browser. Although most pages work fine, some metadata is lost because of limitations within Lynx.
Hearing impaired: The videos on this site have incidental music, but nothing critical to understanding the content. All movies are captioned. There are a few sound clips that have no visual component.
Visually impaired: There are a few sound clips that have no visual component. The movies have no narration, but the Honshu Raid films have a list of scenes; this list can be played with a text-to-speech converter. Most text pages are fully compatible with text-to-speech converters, and the site map leads to all pages.
To adjust the text size in most popular browsers, press CTRL + or CTRL –. Mac users can press Command (Apple) + and Command (Apple) –.
Physically impaired: The pulldown menus that appear at the top of each page are not needed to navigate this site. The site map leads to all pages, and works especially well from Lynx.
