Multimedia Content in JASA Express Letters
Links to multimedia files are
available in the PDF version of full-text
JASA Express Letters.
Such links are easily recognizable since the
text which links to the multimedia file is surrounded by a thin blue box
(visible on the PDF page), as depicted in the following graphical representation:
When encountered in a JASA Express Letters PDF file, clicking on either blue-bordered box will
initialize the download of the specific multimedia file (the above graphic is not clickable).
In addition, the "hand" cursor icon in Acrobat
will change, when passed over such links,
into a pointing hand, with a "W" on it. In JASA Express Letters, the
pointing hand with
a "W" indicates a PDF "Weblink", and means that the underlying text is
linked to a multimedia file.

plug-ins and/or helper applications may be required in order to view
