What happens when a new story is added to the site?
We’re adding new stories and resources all the time. If you have a subscription, you’ll be able to access anything new as soon as it is published.
Do your stories work on iPads?
Yes, our stories run as movies on the iPad. They can be played, paused, fast forwarded etc using the video player controls. The only functionality missing is the ability to hide/show the text if this is an option in the story.
I'm not seeing the interactive version on my computer
Our website works on computers, laptops, iPads and other mobile devices. We always produce two versions of each story – an interactive one and a movie one. If you use the website on a computer or laptop, you should see the interactive version of the stories. This allows you to click on the buttons to move through the stories at your own pace, hide/show the text - and click on the hidden creatures! On an iPad or phone, you will see the movie version. This not interactive, but you can use the controls to play, pause and enter full screen mode.
If you are using Chrome as your browser, you may find that there is a problem and you are now seeing the movie version on your computer. This is because the security settings in Chrome have changed and you now have to choose to allow Flash to run.
1. Click the lock at the top left of the address bar.
2. Change the Flash setting to Allow.
3. Click the cross at the top right to close the window.
4. To apply the updated setting, click the Reload button which appears at the top of the web page.
You only need to go through this procedure once to enable Flash on all the pages in the website. It's a good idea to do it as soon as you enter the home page. Once you close Chrome, your preferences are not saved so you'll need to allow Flash again the next time you open the website.
If you are using Safari as your browser, you can change your settings to allow Flash Player to run on the website every time you open it.
The procedure varies depending on which version of Safari you are using, so it’s best to follow Adobe’s clear instructions at:
