Is it possible to enable the option to play the audio from the site? I mean, it’d be awesome to listen to the audios from the site itself instead of having to download it all the time. It’s kinda frustrating. I don’t know but I think it’s a must-have tool for a site like this. It’d be just perfect.

Best regards!:)

Hello, Krish! There is an audio player on the site. It’s right above the text that says, “Clique AQUI baixar o áudio para o seu computador.” But it is a flash player. Maybe your browswer doesn’t support flash. What browser are you using, if I may ask?
