Technical UPDATE: As of March 12, 2018
I used to be able to use these interactive audio examples, shown far
below. I remember that audio would play when I clicked on words or sentences. But now they don't work.
The previously created interactive audio examples did
work earlier in previous years. However, recently, all major browsers have suddenly
stopped supporting "Flash", a key software component. So,
all of the original "Flash"-based software examples now do NOT
Q. Are you going to give up?
We are finalizing a new "re-coded" HTML5 software framework that does NOT require
"Flash". (For the technically inclined: The new software code will work on nearly all devices without any installation.)
Q. Will the new interactive audio examples work... and still be free?
A. Yes! And, yes!
Q. Can I "take a peek" at the new "read-along" reading application examples based on the new HTML5 coding specifications?
A. Yes! Here are the newest working HTML5 examples

is an advanced "read-along" story called "Windswept":
is a very basic "read-along" song for learning the ABC's called "Alphabet Song":
is a popular and traditional "read-along" song called "Hunting We Will Go":
Directions For Using The "Read-Along" Audio Applications
- After you open the application, start
by tapping the spacebar key on your keyboard or click on the "play
icon" of the long audio console bar that appears at the top.
- Or, you can also double-click on any highlighted link to start anywhere.
- To pause, press the spacebar key.
- To reload, press the F5 key.
Q. But... the examples displayed BELOW still don't
work now, right?
That's right. Now, they don't work now. However, in the near
future, the "flash-based applications" will be "recoded"
as new "HTML5" "read-along" audio applications.
