I must admit I have just tried the latest version of this software and while it claims to be playing there is no sound.

I think the obvious question is why this program should be necessary at all?

Why is the BBC's site difficult to navigate. Surely an organisation like the BBC should be aware of good web design or am I still naive or suffering a mid-life crisis?

I suspect that you may have misunderstood the subject of this thread.
We were not talking about listening directly from the bBC site
itself but via the Accessible Listen Again program available from
The download link on the latter now points to version 2.3 although
most of us seem to have problems with it and have reverted to 2.1.

Accessible listen Again is simply an attempt to provide a qconvenient
interface without navigating the BBC site itself.

Hope that clarifies things,

How do you select either the new or older listen again players?

having just been to radio4 listen again, and it works fine here. bearing
in mind the problems folks are having with the new version, do I take it
that I am listening to the older 2.1 version which still works?  Or am I
listening to the newer version and one of a minority who that version
works for?
