How do I listen to audio icons in Horizons ebook?

Horizons 7th ed
ISBN-13: 9781337568265

 

I'm clicking on the purple speaker icons in the ebook online at VitalSource and getting nothing.

The read aloud feature is not what I am looking for. The French text is mangled in that feature. I thought the speaker icons in the text were associated with French pronunciation for students. At the bottom of the page it says: "You can access the audio of the active vocabulary of this Compétence online." Where?

Sorry, I figured it was more than Read Aloud that you would want, so according to Vital Source, all extra resources are maintained by the publisher. This is what Vitalsource says about resources: https://support.vitalsource.com/hc/en-us/articles/115012398527-About-Resources

And here is the instructor companion site on Cengage: https://www.cengage.com/cgi-wadsworth/course_products_wp.pl?fid=M20bI&product_isbn_issn=978133756826...

 

Or you can create MindTap course and see everything there!

Katherine, When I am in MindTap and click on the Full Book button to the right, I see the textbook online but there is no audio. Is there some other way to access the ebook with all functions?

Thank you! When I contacted support to ask where the ebook was with all functionality, they signed me up for VitalSource. Didn't know it was at the bottom of Learning Path. I appreciate your help!

Yes, as Sandy said, when you are in your MindTap course, on the left of your screen, you'll see all of the chapters with the activities, but if you scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see one that says Horizons eBook. You can click on that, and you'll see that the eBook is divided out by chapters. Any audio clips/videos that are shown in the book can be accessed here. (I never use the eBook that is on the menu bar on the right, since it isn't always fully functional.)

You should be able to view the book in the Learning Path (outline view) and get all functionality.

I use the Horizons eBook through MindTap. If you're using MindTap, you can access the eBook through your MindTap course under the outline view. By accessing the eBook through your MindTap course, you'll find all of the audio clips that are embedded into the book.

Besides all of the other info I provided above, I found the Instructor Companion site on Cengage where you might find everything you need: https://www.cengage.com/cgi-wadsworth/course_products_wp.pl?fid=M20bI&product_isbn_issn=978133756826...

Honestly I didn't even know you could get audio or video from Vital source textbooks. I thought they were all static.  I did research this a bit, however and found this on the vital source site if it helps!

If it's not Read Aloud that you want, Vital Source states that all extra resources are maintained by the publisher so my guess is that you need to look at the instructor companion site for that text.  Here is more info from https://support.vitalsource.com/hc/en-us/articles/115012398527-About-Resources
