In order to listen to the speeches, you must first download and install the DSS Player Lite software from Olympus. This procedure only needs to be done once. If you have already installed the player close this window and go directly to the link for the speeches.

Once you click on the "I Agree" link below you will be prompted to save the file "dsslite.exe" to your local hard drive. Remember where you are saving this file as you will need to run it once the download is complete. To install the software just double click on the dsslite.exe file you downloaded. Once the program has started you can select all the defaults as it walks you through the install wizard.

The software is approximately 2.1 MB and will take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes to download based on end-user connectivity.

Once the software is installed you can click on the speech link and select "Save". The audio file will be downloaded to your local hard drive. Again, remember where you are saving the file. When the download is completed just double click on the Hobson.dss file or the Lott.dss file and it will open automatically in the DSS Player Lite. If you want to have the file open as soon as it is downloaded, select "Open" instead of "Save" when prompted.

Please read the Terms and Use Agreement below before downloading and installing the software.
