The Read page on the VoxForge site contains a Java applet.  A Java applet is basically a Java program that runs on the Java Run-time Environment on your PC, but looks like it forms part of a web page. 

Part of the start-up process for any Java applet is a check to see if the applet is going to use any resources on your PC - like accessing to your hard drive, the Internet, etc.
