Elyse has worked hard to bring her knowledge and experience to you. To
make the most of this expertise, you'll need just a few gadgets: a
computer and a playback device (i.e. an iPod, digital music player, or
portable CD player).
of the audio tours are in mp3 - the world's most popular and flexible
format. Each tour consists of multiple tracks combined together in a
zip file. You'll need to follow these steps to use the tours:
you purchase the tours you are interested in, you will be given a link
to download the purchased files. Click the link and download the .zip
Macintosh and Windows computers come with utilities to
"unzip" a .zip file... use your utility to extract the tracks of the
tour. Often, you can simply right click on the .zip file and find the
option to extract.
Now that you have the .mp3 files that make
up the tour, you need to put them somewhere - use the software that
came with your playback device to move the files to the device, or burn
a CD for later use. Apple's iTunes (free of charge) works on Mac and Windows for both these purposes.
