The ultimate multimedia, self-study computer program
The new Windows Vista Computación sin Barreras® is a self-study program designed for Spanish-speakers with little to no knowledge of the world of computing and the Internet; we’ve expanded the course content from 20 hours of training in the Windows XP version to over 90 hours of training in the Windows Vista version. The program goes over the basics of computing by telling the story of Ramón Rulfo, a Hispanic father who decides to surprise his wife and two kids with a brand new computer at their arrival from vacation in Mexico. The user experiences Ramón’s discoveries while two neighbors teach him how to set up and use the new computer so that he can later show his family the many benefits of having a computer at home. Computación sin Barreras is a multimedia course containing 7 DVDs, 7 CDs and 7 manuals.
