How to Stream or Download the Audio Guides
If your data plan permits, you can stream the audio guides right from the player on our site (like the one above). Be aware that the audio may stop playing if your screen goes dark, depending on your phone settings.
Downloading to Your Device...
If you prefer to download an audio-guide file straight to your phone, be aware that downloaded files store in different places on different devices, and you'll need to Google your particular device's file storage to know where and how to play the audio guide that way.
