So, are you ready? Have you printed out this page to reference? Great! Let’s get started!

Step One: Determine if You Have the Proper Equipment

Audios require that your computer have a sound card and either external or built-in speakers. Be sure that your volume is turned up, that your computer hasn’t been put into “mute” mode, and that your speakers are plugged in (if external).

Step Two: Determine if You Have the Correct Software

The audio files (in MP3 format) require that you have an MP3 player installed on your computer. You can also download RealPlayer by going to: https://www.realplayer.com/

We strongly recommend that you download RealPlayer if it isn’t already installed on your computer.

PC Users
If you are using a PC, click on the start button on the lower left corner of your screen. When a window opens, click on “All Programs”. If the programs are on your computer, you should see “RealPlayer” in the programs list. Make sure you peek in the folders that appear in the list by holding your mouse over the folder. If you don’t see the program, you’ll need to download it.

Mac Users
If you are using a Mac, click on the apple on the top left corner of your screen. In the menu that opens, click on “Control Panel”, then select “Launcher”.

Step Three: Begin Downloading the MP3 Files

Downloading files for the first time may be overwhelming. But, in actuality, it can be a rather fun process.

Before you begin downloading the files below, you may want to consider reading a bit about how to create a directory, or folder, on your computer. This will help you to download your files into a folder that you can easily locate. A good step-by-step guide to creating new folders on a

You may also find it helpful to plan a block of time when you will be downloading files. If, for example, you’re on a high speed Internet connection (such as a network in your workplace) downloading files goes quite quickly, but you should plan at least ½ hour when you can download the files in case there are any problems that might pop up. The files should take approximately 4-5 minutes on a high speed connection.

Feeling brave? You can save time download multiple files at once. After you start downloading the first file, simply repeat the instructions below to start the next file. We recommend not downloading more than three files at a time, because it may make your computer move slower. We definitely don’t want that!

Final Thoughts

We have done our best to make this instruction sheet as comprehensive as possible. If you find any errors or need clarification about what we mean for a particular step, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Unfortunately, because of the unpredictability and variety of computers, we will not be able to offer individual assistance on getting your computer setup. If you are experiencing difficulties with getting your speakers to work or your programs installed, we highly recommend that you seek the help of a technician.

Downloadable Files

Remember, you do not want to actually click on the links as you normally would do on a website. If you click on the link, your browser will attempt to open the file, rather than download it.
