All of the sounds in the
Languages for Travellers pages are in
.au format. If you are on a SUN or SGI Computer then you
should not have problems playing them, if you are on a PC and some Mac's then
you will probablly need a special program to play the sounds. Recent versions
of Netscape and MS Internet Exporer have sound players built in that can
play .au files automatically.
