  • Hi Marcia,

    Sorry to hear you are having problems downloading the audio files. The ability to download the files should not depend on what type of product you are using. We have checked them using a Mac and are able to download the files without any problems.

    However, if you are still experiencing problems you can follow this procedure:

    To save the audio files to your Mac, hold down the Control (Ctrl) key, click on the file and select either ‘Open Link in New Window’ or ‘Open Link in New Tab’. Then go to the new window or tab and select ‘File / Save page as’. You can then choose a location on your Mac to save the MP3 file.

    Also the instructions for downloading are different depending on which browser you are using:

    Internet Explorer
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Target As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Firefox
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Link As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Chrome
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Link As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Safari
    Right click (or Ctrl + click) on the audio link, and choose ‘Download Linked File’. A Downloads window should appear showing the downloaded file. If the Downloads window doesn’t appear, click on Windows Downloads. Once downloaded, you can listen to the files on a media player on your computer or transfer them to a portable MP3 player.

    If you are still having difficulties please contact our technical support team at help@macmillan.com.

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team

  • Could you work on the problem of downloading audio tapes if you have an Apple product? Without downloading, I can't use the audio tapes unless my clients have internet access. There must be someway that you can do this, as other sites do make it possible to download onto Mac. I would be deeply appreciative. Marcia, Chicago
