After you have read this, scroll/adjust the position/size of the display on the screen so that as little of this text is visible as possible on the display.
The home page (right) gives you a number of options and all you have to do is to click where the coloured lines cross.
On the left, you have sets of five letters - refelecting that the penti is usually taught a row at a time - and on the right, you have the penti 'so-far'. In each case, you can click on the green square for the letter set in order or on the red square for it shuffled - there are four shufflings for each option. At the bottom, there are two sequences of letter that put similar features together: . . . ਅ ਮ ਸ ਗ ਰ ਹ . . . for example. Clicking on one of these starts off the sequence.
The letter pages (right) display each letter in the sequence. At the bottom left (D), a timer counts off roughly ten seconds (depending upon how fast your browser can draw) and at the end of that, the name of the letter is revealed - this is always in the same place so if you need to cover it up (such as in a whole-class situation) then you can put your fingers across it there.
There are four active parts to the screen: A will take you back to the previous letter; B will take you to the next; C will take you to the flash cards home page and D will restart the clock. On most browsers, the page will automatically load the next page in the sequence after around a minute.
