An MP3 player such as RealPlayer® from RealNetworks® or Microsoft® Windows Media Player. These players can currently be downloaded at no cost from http://www.real.com and http://www.microsoft.com , respectively.
If you prefer a light, fast, and free media player, the Superior Language Products CD-ROM contains the MP3 player CoolPlayer by DaanSystems. CoolPlayer is compact and has an easy to use interface which includes rewind and graphic equalizer features that you will find useful. It consists of a single executable file which you must copy to your hard disk (any location is fine).You can download CoolPlayer here or here. You can set up CoolPlayer by choosing "options" from the pop-up menu when you right click on the player window.
Whatever media player you choose for this application, be sure to configure it so that it runs on top of other windows ( “Always on top” option) and so is always accessible to you while Adobe Reader displays the text in full screen view. Consequently, be sure to set up your player so that it runs minimized, in compact format, or affixed to the task bar so that it covers a bare minimum of the screen.
* - I have had reports that this CD will run properly on Mac OSX operating system. It also functions well under Linux, using Adobe® Reader® for Linux Operating Systems. CoolPlayer, however, runs strictly under the Windows environment, so you won't be able to use CoolPlayer under Mac or Linux.
