Questions and Answers

• What is an audio guide?

An audio guide is a guided walk of a popular location. It consists of a tour map, which shows the sights on a street map and the audio files themselves. The audio files are in MP3 format and you play them on your own equipment. The map is in PDF format, printable on any printer. The audio guide is easy to use. Each sight is identified by a number – on the map and in the name of the audio file. Just select the corresponding number on your iPod, MP3 player or smartphone and press Play.

• What will I get for my money?

You will receive (download) a zipped file, which contains the guide in the form of MP3 files and a map in PDF format.

• What I do after download?

You will need to extract (unzip) all of the files from the zipped file folder you downloaded. You can do this by right (or double) clicking on the zipped folder and selecting “extract all files”. When the files have been extracted (unzipped) there will be a separate MP3 file for each story that can be dragged and dropped into iTunes or another audio player for transfering onto your iPod, MP3 player or smartphone.
