How to View Web-Based "Small Bite" Military Postal History Articles

[presentation]

The Military Postal History Society has started to post interactive web-based "small bite" articles that cover very limited aspects of what could be major military postal history subjects. This web system allows you to view a presentation, much like the PowerPoint (tm) system available on Microsoft computers. However, you can view these presentation slides without any additional software on your computer, phone, or tablet.

Features of All Viewing Devices

Table of Contents

A small "Table of Contents" menu has been placed at the top left of all presentation slides. Clicking on this icon takes you to a Table of Contents for the presentation. Since the ToC was created by the author, not all slides may be represented in that list.

Bookmarking

Since you are viewing the presentation in a web browser, you can bookmark (or "favorite") any of the slides in the presentation. Each slide has a unique URL. When you want to return to a particular place within the presentation, you just use the "Bookmarks" feature of your browser to bring up that slide.

On Phone or Tablet

In addition to the above "all devices" features, you can, on a phone or tablet, navigate through the presentation by just swiping left or right to see the previous or next slide.

It is strongly recommended that you rotate your phone or tablet horizontally, so that the presentation appears as it would look on a display screen.

On a phone or tablet, you can "pinch in" with two fingers to see an overview of all slides in miniature. You can then swipe from slide to slide, pressing on the slide you want to see in normal size.

On Computer

In addition to the above "all devices" features, you can navigate on a computer in a wide variety of ways. For instance, on a computer with a touchscreen, you can navigate through the presentation by just swiping left or right to see the previous or next slide.

Touchscreen or not, you can always navigate by pressing the left or right arrow on your keyboard to move between the previous and next slides. Also, clicking on the small set of arrows in the lower right corner of each slide provides navigation through the presentation.

There are a number of keyboard features in this web package, including:
