TO DOWNLOAD AUDIO FILES

Right click the audio file link and save the (.wma) or (.mp3) file to your desktop or to a folder on your hard drive.

Then when the file is saved to your desktop, click on the file to play it.

The audio file should then find the player automatically and start playing the file.

If the file does not play, you may need to install an audio player that will play (.wma) and/or (.mp3) file types.

or you may need the Windows Media Player plugin for your browser.

HOW TO HAVE AUDIO PLAY IN GOOGLE CHROME WITHOUT DOWNLOADING THE AUDIO

For Google Chrome plugin click here. (Don't install this one)
(I think we installed this one and Google chrome said it was infected and removed it or something to that effect)

 

Not sure which one of these below work to play audio in Google Chrome, but we have these Chrome extensions installed, as shown below plus the software installed at the 3 links below, and audio plays in our Google Chrome.  We tried several things too fast and now we are not exactly sure what it was we did that finally got audio to play in Google Chrome.  Maybe try the 3 links below, and if that doesn't work then try the Google Chrome Extensions called "Google Cast" and "Videostream for Google Chrome Cast".  Hope you can get it to work.  Good luck.

 

 

Plus on our Windows 7 Desktop we installed the following

K-Lite Codec (Basic Package) and K-Lite Codec Pack Update

and

xVid (for .Avi video files)

DivX (you don't need this for Google Chrome to play .wma audio files because we uninstalled it and audio would still play in Google Chrome)

We have all this on our computer and somehow we got audio to play in Google Chrome.

We also noticed this setting in Windows Media Player Tools/Options.
Not sure if this setting makes a difference or not.

Usually FREE  Windows Media File Icon Windows Media audio player is installed on Windows operating systems, or you may need to download Windows Media audio player and install it yet. WMA Player For Windows 7

We are not sure what audio player program is installed on a Mac operating system because we don't use Mac but you can play (.wma) and/or (.mp3) files using a Mac.

Windows Media File Icon means Windows Media audio file type (.wma)

.mp3 file icon - click here for help with audio means .mp3 audio file type (.mp3)

If you click on .wma or .mp3 icon it will bring you to this page.

To install one of these software programs mentioned above, download the .exe or .zip file to your desktop by clicking on the download link and saving the file to your desktop or to another yellow file folder, so you can find the file again, and then click on the file you downloaded and follow the instructions.  Even a novice can install a software program.  If it asks you if you want to install using advanced settings or automatically ... choose automatically.

If your C: drive isn't too full, don't change the default hard drive (C:) of where the program wants to automatically install.  If you want to install on D: drive instead, then when it comes up to where it asks you if you want to install the program to C: drive, just backspace and type changing the drive letter C: to D: so it will install on D: drive instead.

If the software program file you downloaded is not a .exe file but is a .zip file instead, then you will need to extract the contents of the setup.exe and other files contained within the .zip file first.  Just click on the .zip file and extract the contents to a new yellow file folder that you first make on your hard drive. (right click the start button in windows and then click explore to make a new file folder) When you get there, in the top menu click on File/new file folder (but first make sure your cursor is highlighting the top level of the File Folder you want to make the new yellow file folder in).  After making and naming the new yellow file folder, click on the .zip file and extract the contents (files) into your new yellow file folder.  After the .zip files have been extracted to your new yellow file folder, look for the setup.exe file inside the new yellow folder you just made.  Once you have found the setup.exe file you extracted to the new yellow folder, click on the setup.exe file to start the installation and follow the instructions.  It will tell you when it has finished installed and you may have to click the ok button. Then reboot your computer.  Now you can try the program.  To start the program look for it in the Windows start button/all programs menu.
