Download the Himalayan Academy LiveCode Apps Player

Note to Windows users: be sure when you unzip the program to unzip the entire package at once. You should end up with an application folder with a folder named "HA Stack Player_3-2_win" inside of which you fill find "HA Stack Player.exe" and another folder "Externals." These must stay together in the same location. You can make a short cut to the application executable (HA Stack Player.exe) if you like. You will need to start this at every transcription session.
