How to Listen to or Download Audio from New York Beyond Sight

To listen to or download audio on this site, you can choose to listen to individual audio files, download and save individual audio files, or download and save all the audio files on the site at once. Here’s how to do these three options:

  1. To listen to individual audio files, on each place page when you hear click to listen mp3, hit enter and an mp3 audio file will download and play. The audio is NOT saved in your computer.
     
  2. To download and save individual audio files, when you hear click to download zip, hit enter to start the process of downloading and saving a compressed or zipped audio file to your computer. You can track the file download via your browser's download manager. When the download is complete, your browser may automatically extract the audio from the zipped file. If it doesn’t, you must use third party software such as WinZip, WinRar, or CAM UnZip to extract or unzip the file. Then you can listen to the audio whenever you want to on your computer, or you can load the files into a portable mp3 player.
     
  3. To download and save all the audio files on the site at once, use the link click to download all mp3 files. A very large compressed or zipped file containing all the individual audio files on the site will download to your computer. This may take some minutes depending on the speed of your internet access.  When the download is complete, your browser may automatically extract the audio from the zipped file.
