I think that these programs (like Webbbi itself) are really intended 
to make things a little easier for beginners.  The BBC site is not 
that difficult to navigate for an experienced screen reader user, but 
personally (perhaps as a result of advancing years!) I like to save 
time where possible and the interfaces of these programs 
(particularly the latest Listen again) give me very convenient access 
to an enormous number of Listen Again items.

As I may have said in an earlier post, the developer thinks that he 
has identified a bug in the current software which is causing the 
absence of sound and hopes to correct it very shortly.
