This page addresses problems with streaming audio MP3 files on the Handiham website. If you are having problems with Handiham Remote Base station audio, please see the support pages for the Remote Base.
Symptom: Links do not work when you try to use the audio on the Handiham
website. To test this, check out the link below.
Next, there is a link directly to the MP3 audio file. When you click this
link and nothing seems to happen, it is probably not because there is anything
wrong, but because the file is large and it may take several minutes to download
on a slower Internet connection. If you want to save the file to your hard
drive, you should right click on it and choose "save target as", then
tell it where to save and what filename. This is useful for listening
later, or to place the audio on your portable MP3 player. Here is where you can
download the weekly e-letter audio in MP3:
Okay, what happened?
Did you hear the audio stream? Next, check to make sure your speakers are turned on and not muted. Sometimes people leave headphones connected, which mutes the speaker. If that is the case, try listening through your computer's headphones.
Still no audio? Perhaps you do not have an audio player installed and configured correctly.
Sometimes browsers are set to "cache" web pages to save download times, especially on slower dial-up connections. Cached web pages may have outdated links. The solution is to use the "refresh" command in your browser's menu items. In most web browsers, like Internet Explorer or Firefox, the refresh is done by pressing the F5 key near the top of the keyboard. Refresh, then re-try the links.
We hope this solves your problem. If you continue to have problems opening audio links to the weekly e-letter, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and describe in detail what happens when you try to follow a link.
