The Homer Learn-to-Read Program works with all Apple iPads and iPhones using iOS9 and higher.
If you are using a computer, we recommend your computer meets the following system requirements:
1) A 2GHz processor
2) 4GB Ram (memory)
Most recent computers meet these requirements. To check your computer's system requirements, follow these instructions
1) Open the System window. This can be accessed by:
- Pressing the Windows key + the Pause/Break key (upper right of the keyboard).
- By right-clicking on Computer/My Computer and selecting Properties. In Windows XP, this is called System Properties.
2) Find your system specifications. They are located in the “System” section of the Properties window, or the “Computer” section in Windows XP. You will see the following information:
- Processor - This is the speed of your CPU. Virtually all processors will be Intel or AMD. If you are unsure what the processor model means, do a web search to see the details.
- Memory (RAM) – This is the amount of memory you have on your computer. If you have a 32-bit operating system, you can only have up to 4 GB of RAM, even if you have more installed.
- System type – This will tell you what version of Windows you are running. Newer versions of Windows will also tell you if you have a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor.
1) Click the Apple menu. Select “About This Mac”.
2) Click “More Info”. This will open a new window that lists your Mac system specs. You will be able to see the following system information:
- Processor - This is the speed of your CPU. Virtually all processors will be Intel. If you are unsure what the processor model means, do a web search to see the details.
- Memory (RAM) – This will show the amount of system memory you have installed. The more memory you have, the greater your capability to run multiple programs at once or memory-hungry programs like Photoshop.
- Software version – This is the version of OS X you are running. Both the name (Yosemite) and the version number (10.10.5) will be displayed.
1) Open your distribution’s graphical system monitor. Most modern Linux distributions have a graphical interface that can display your system specifications much like Windows. For example, the program is called System Monitor in Ubuntu. Programs such as these will display:
- Operating system – Your operating system (Ubuntu) and version number will be shown at the top.
- Memory – This is the amount of RAM you have installed on your system. More RAM means your ability to run multiple programs is increased.
- Processor – This is the CPU you have installed. If there are multiple identical processors listed, each one represents one of the cores on your processor. Do a web search for your processor model to see detailed specs.
- Available space – This is the amount of free space you have on your hard drive.
