Enjoy Alpha Online

Welcome to Alpha Online your source of medical information online with the option to order printed books or lower cost eBooks for download. We offer nutrient formulas as important tools of recovery from many medical problems. Here are a few suggestions for the best experiences interacting with our website:

Compatible Browsers

The web pages at Alpha Online use the latest and best HTML 5 level of coding. Older web browsers may fail to show page content and audio players.

To enjoy all the features of out web pages we recommend the most recent version of Google Chrome and the Android OS on tablets (10" screens are good). Recent Apple operating systems do well and the 10" iPad provides a reasonable reading experience. Laptops and desktop computers with larger screens are best. Microsoft Explorer 10 and 11 work well with HTML 5 but earlier internet explorer versions will not. The new Microsoft browser "edge" in windows 10 is perfect. You Tube is now using the HTML 5 video player. We have attempted to use our audio players in Explorer 9 with some success. We were alarmed to realize that about 40% of our audience are using Explorer 8 which is a bust. We encourage these users to update their browser ASAP. If you are running an older version of windows, forget Microsoft Explorer and use the current version of Google's Chrome.

Test your audio playing ability...you should see a player bar with the start/stop controls, a timer and volume control. If you don't see this, you need to update your browser.

Bigger Screens are Better

Screen size is the deciding factor when you attempt to read and understand information-rich web pages. A 10" tablet, laptop, or better, a desktop computer are best suited for meaningful reading and interaction. We know that people who attempt to read our webpages and eBooks on smart phones cannot enjoy the full benefit of our best efforts. They have difficulty understanding the rich information we provide and often have difficulty handling transactions online. They only get a small sample of what we offer.

After two decades of experimentation with eBook formats and readers, we have had the best results with Adobe PDF files as downloads. The only stipulation is that the receiving device can store, read, and properly display PDF files. Desktop computers offer luxurious accommodation - big screens, big keyboards, and big storage capacity and are the best options for serious learning and work. Several smart phones with larger, full color screens will display a microscopic version of webpages and eBooks. We continue to have misgivings about attempting to read books on small screens.
We use dual 25" monitors in our office workstations and enjoy listening to music and reading Web Pages and PDF files. To us, attempting to read meaningful text on a smart phone or small tablet can become an exercise in frustration.
