How to Use ne/Frames on Digital Screens
ne/Frames are available as video, PowerPoint and jpeg images. They can be downloaded and viewed directly on a computer or downloaded to a flash drive for use with a digital picture screen. You determine the pace at which the ne/frames are shown; desired slideshow time is 7-10 seconds per slide. Each slide is separate, and numbered to show in a particular order. After all the slides have shown, the program will loop back and start again.

Almost always the frames will play in the correct order. However if they don’t on your machine, here is some help.

Several publications document ne/Frames usefulness and feasibility:
