To listen to any Audio News segment, just click the tiny speaker icon on the left-hand side of the window and it should play through your Web browser using whichever media player you've chosen as the default for MP3 files.
It is possible to save a copy of the Audio News file on your computer, depending on the type of media player you are using. For example, if it is QuickTime, right click on the control bar as Audio News is playing and select Save as Source. In Windows Media Player, click File and Save As. Some Web browsers such as Internet Explorer may also allow you to right click on the speaker icon and select Save Target As. If the Save Target As option is "grayed out" in your Internet Explorer browser, there is a work-around available from Microsoft. See more information here.
After you have saved a copy of Audio News to your hard drive, you can use a free audio editor such as Audacity to break the file into smaller segments if you wish. (Note: To export MP3 files from Audacity you must install the free "LAME" encoding library after installing Audacity. More information is available here.)
