OK, here's what I found - after I went to
and enabled JavaScript (I have NoScript) I saw a PLAY button with the "|>"
image at the top, which after I clicked it yielded a small popup with a flash
applet, which I presume allowed me to play the file (I am sighted). 

According to Firebug ( ) , the Play button is found at
this CSS path:

html.js body.html div.container_15 div.containerbg div.grid_10
div#content.column div.section div.region div#block-system-main.block
div.content div.node div.genblock div.onecol div.articleHeader div.listenbar
div.listenbarLeft a.newWindow img

And its content is:

<img border="0" alt="Play associated audio"

With an alt caption.
