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.
