- Other Issues and Comments:
- Generally a nice site, but it could have been easier to use. It took me awhile to figure out that I needed to click the "next" and then the "play" buttons. I expected that clicking "next" only would start the next slide, but it didn't. It was a two step process, but it could have been just a one step process.
