I have a handful of titles I bought back in 1996 from The Voyager Company. Apparently, these things were authored using HyperCard and distributed for both Windows and Mac platforms.

Does anyone know if there's a way to read these on a modern computer?

Thanks!

Until I came across your post, I have never even heard of those. But I did a quick research. Here are some basics on that format:

HyperCard was withdrawn from sale in 2004, however, there are some HyperCard clones still available:

For OS X: http://www.supercard.us/
For Win (free player WinPlus 3.0): http://www.angelfire.com/ab2/literacy/win.html
Cross-platform: http://www.metacard.com/

Maybe you should try one of these.
