Starting the lessons is simple. Insert the disk into the CD drive of your computer and activate the drive until an opening menu screen appears. Listen and follow the instructions on the opening menu screen and select Lower Case, Upper Case, or Combined to start the lessons. Selecting Lower Case permits the user to view and hear how individual lower case letters a-z are formed. Selecting Upper Case permits the user to view and hear how upper case letters are formed in a similar manner. The user may repeat the a-z selection over and over again while practicing with paper and pencil. Selecting the Combined Lesson menu provides a demonstration of combining letters into words.
