widget: 'Now Hear This' single audio file

Why use it?

Got audio? Is it MP3? If it is, then you're all set to use our audio file player (Now Hear This).

How to use it

Your audio file will need an image to show in the player. That image must be exactly 275px wide by 183px high. Shoot for something around 15K or less. After copying the code at left you'll need to make some edits to the 'file' and 'image' variables (in bold). Change those two URLs to point to your own files. Don't mess with any of the other parts of the code. Now edit the headline and text (don't change the paragraph classes). Edit the links if needed (again, don't change the paragraph class), and if not just delete that paragraph.


put this code in your page <body>:

<div class="nht-275">
  <h3>now hear this</h3>
  <span class="btns-r"></span>
  <p id="nht-player" style="margin-top:0;padding:0;">This feature requires JavaScript and <a href="">the Flash Player</a>.</p>
  <script type="text/javascript">
  var nht = new SWFObject('','mpl','275','203','1');
  <div class="box_txt">
    <p class="box_77"><strong>Mixing Math with Sports Stats</strong></p>
    <p class="box_77">What really are your chances of successfully completing the March Madness bracket? Practically impossible, but are there any tips that can increase your odds?</p>

Don't make changes that compromise the designed function or appearance of the widgets. They should look, and behave, the same way no matter where they appear. Changes to font sizes, link colors, and/or other elements cause uncertainty for users, and compromise the visual and functional design that is part of the UNO brand. So please, use the widgets only as they are designed, and only for their intended uses. These widgets are only for use in the right-hand column (04 Main Content Right Column) of the WTA_01 template.
