Technical Requirements

Although the System Recommendations page suggests multiple web browsers can be used, we strongly recommend using the latest version of the Google Chrome web browser (download here), based on our experiences. We also recommend using the latest version of MacOS or Windows (not an electronic tablet or phone), as listed on the System Recommendations page. To be sure all requirements are met, a system check will be performed at the beginning of the test and may also be accessed in advance here.
