We are having trouble getting to "Link to MP3 file" to show the window to save the file. I made a power point document showing the steps in MS IE but when he gets to LINK TO MP3 FILE. and clicks on it. the MP3 player opens. currently he is unable to find how to save the file. He has looked in the download folder - not there.

Try the temp directory (and keep ur feet dry there in Houston)

I looked in the "temp directory" and there are no MP3 files being saved there.

home page chose miscellaneous MP3 practice files
SUBMIT your selection there

Download appears under Submit button
Hint: Instead of manually downloading each file, a download-manager can make things much easier. Click here for a short tutorial.

lcwo-005.mp3 lcwo-005.txt

Download all files at once. (Warning: This may not work if you are using a popup-blocker. Most browsers allow to permit pop-up windows for particular sites.)

Chose in bottom window for Save, Save as. or Save and open
That is a pop up window so do not block pop up windows
New pop up appears Open, Open Folder, View downloads on same screen location.

I chose open folder
It appears to be present on ThisPC/downloads

You can find pop up blocker under
IE top row chain wheel. click
that yields "Internet Options"
chose tab "Privacy"
There is a selection box for pop up blocker.

Hi Mark,

there are two possibilities: Right-click on the "Link to MP3" and then select "Save Link as...", to save it locally, or once the MP3 player opens (after left clicking the link), press Ctrl-S in the browser to save it to any convenient location.

He wants an MP3 downloaded file, not the link.
AFAIK that is possible with lesson exercises, word exercises and so on but NOT with text to CW.

In that case he may use ebook2CW to generate the file local on his PC.

Saving-the-file-pointed-to is what "Save Link as..." does in an English language web browser, brushup . . .

The exact behaviour with multimedia files is dependent upon which browser/plugin/associated app combination you use, because some will still use the associated app and you have to save from within the app.

"Copy link [ address]" is the pop-up menu option for catching a link as text.

The "Convert text to cw" LCWO facility gives you a link to the converter cgi with the source text in the URL,
so
if you want you can just edit the text within the URL and ignore the entry form . . .

eg.

http://cgi3.lcwo.net/cgi-bin/cw.mp3?s=25&e=25&f=800&t=what%20hath%20god%20wrought

gives you "what hath god wrought" at 25wpm 800Hz



Maybe some American programmer got confused, back at the dawn of ( browser ) time . . . .

The link then download MP3 FILE has been working for a few years now. Larry, is a CWops level 2 student. He is the first to document a problem. It works for me using win 7; IE 11. But using Chrome the link starts the player no file to download.
