:

A type of web browser associated with the Mac OS platform.

:
Many satellites transmit photographic images which can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. tracking the progress of a hurricane. Images can be received, stored and viewed on a computer.
:
Works like a small photocopier, but the image can be displayed on a computer screen, saved to disc or printed out. Most scanners will take up to A4 size.

To organize a document thematically, you can use scenes. For example, you might use separate scenes for an introduction, a loading message, and credits.

Note: You cannot use scenes in a screen-based document.

When you publish a Flash document that contains more than one scene, the scenes in the document play back in the order they are listed in the Scene panel in the Flash document. Frames in the document are numbered consecutively through scenes. For example, if a document contains two scenes with ten frames each, the frames in Scene 2 are numbered 11-20.

You can add, delete, duplicate, rename, and change the order of scenes.

To stop or pause a document after each scene, or to let users navigate the document in a nonlinear fashion, you use actions.

A search engine is a program designed to help find information stored on a computer system such as the World Wide Web, inside a corporate or proprietary network or a personal computer.
:
Most CD-ROMs and the Internet have search engines. These are facilities which allow the user to search for information without having to look through a whole index or catalogue and are generally based on keywords and logical operators.
:
Permits searching of documents and databases accessible on the Internet. Search engines can be set up to search only content within one Web site or to search the entire Internet. Many search engine developers have their own web sites such as Lycos and Alta Vista. In addition to search engines there are index sites such as Yahoo, where links to Web sites are organized into categories so that you can browse categories rather than guessing at search terms.
:

The protection of information assets through the use of technology, processes, and training.

:
Equipment which can be connected to a computer, and which will record and display information from sensors, e.g. light, sound, movement or temperature. Some sensing equipment can be used to collect data away from the computer, but be linked to the computer later to display the recordings made.
:

A powerful computer which is central to many networks.  The server will control access to the network, and will store most files centrally.  Internet web pages are held on the service providers web server.

Shape is a 2D or implied 2D area defined by line or changes in value and/or colour.

:

By tweening shapes, you can create an effect similar to morphing, making one shape appear to change into another shape over time. Flash can also tween the location, size, and color of shapes.

:
Computer programs which simulate real or imaginary scenarios. Often used to simulate events that would normally be impossible, difficult or dangerous.
:

In object-oriented programming, slicing is an operation to slice off a target value by size of the base type, thus extra parts will be gone. This is not the same as array slicing, however it does have similar characteristics.

simple mail transfer protocol

The Snap to Grid tool allows user to precisely position their elements on the Flash page.

:
There are two types of sounds in Flash: event sounds and stream sounds. An event sound must download completely before it begins playing, and it continues playing until explicitly stopped. Stream sounds begin playing as soon as enough data for the first few frames has been downloaded.
:
Many computer programs, especially word processors, can read text audibly and can convert spoken words into text.
:
Most word processors contain the automatic facility to check texts for unknown words. These are spell-checkers. Some word processors also contain the automatic facility to check the grammar of the text against pre-programmed criteria. Both facilities are generally able to offer alternative suggestions where they detect a possible mistake.
:
An application in which textual and numerical data can be entered, stored and displayed. It can perform sophisticated calculations and be used to draw graphs of the data. Spreadsheets are especially useful for exploring models in which the rules are governed by mathematical relationships, e.g. the budget for a design and technology project.

structured query language

When the Stage is magnified, you may not be able to see all of it. The Hand tool lets you move the Stage to change the view without having to change the magnification.

:
The ability to make shapes in adobe flash can me created through using strokes. Strokes can be accessed in the colours section in the tool box, where the colour of the stroke can be changed.
:
Symbols can have all the functionality that you can create with Flash, including animation
:
The rules for the construction of a command or statement when using actionscripting.
