Where in the GitHub repo interface do I go to find what programming langauge(s) are being used?

The Github documentation provides this information but does not actually explain how to access it.

The files and directories within a repository determine the languages that make up the repository. You can view a repository's languages to get a quick overview of the repository.


To view the languages used in a repository, click on the horizontal bar.

pointing at the horizontal bar over the branch selection button

The info on commits, etc., is replaced with the language composition information.

example of language breakdown Java 96.7% HTML 2.7%
