A very good alternative to playing mp3 files in your browser or in the Windows Media Player is the program VLC Media Player, which is downloadable free of charge (and with no problems in this editor’s long experience). It is available on the website http://www.videolan.org/ . It has the advantage that playback can be slowed down using the “-” key (more than once if you wish), and returned to normal using the “=” key. You can follow the instructions on John Fletcher’s site to download and save the MP3 files on your computer, then use “Ctrl-O” to open each one in the VLC Player. Please email your website editor if you would like further advice.
