There's a couple dos utilities called nswp1020 and cweep both of which 
work with screen readers that can tag files.  You could copy those files 
into a separate directory created for the purpose and then use a dos mp3 
player to play them.  By the way, it's mpg321 not mpg123.  The mpg123 
hasn't got the playing capabilities that mpg321 has if memory serves.On
