An “Audio Visual Talk” by Kristy L. Christian (approx. 2 hrs. long. There are 6 video files – each approximately 18-25 minutes long). “Audio Visual Talks” are comprised of digital audio files with PowerPoint slides that accompany the live talk for enhancing and reinforcing the spoken word.

The “Audio Visual Talks” are video .mov files available for purchase. They download directly to your computer. Since most of these talks are between 2-4 hours long, the files will correspond to approximately 30-minute segments. It is recommended that you view these files with QuickTime, a free software program you can download to your computer that works very well with both PCs and Macs. We are planning to offer .mpv files in the future but for now, you can only watch and play these video files by downloading QuickTime software.

Again, if you are having any technical difficulties, please email us at and we would be more than happy to help you.

If you have questions about QuickTime (all Apples come with QuickTime installed), please see our “Help” section. There are tutorials there to use if you are having issues.
