Switch to Content tab. Mark Send to RFE/RL Source checkbox if you would like to share your audio content with our affiliates (Reuters, BBC, Local TV and Radio stations). You can also mark already uploaded content . The checkbox is unchecked by default.
Audio pop out player
For services which have live audio shows or audio records on the site, users could now listen audio shows via audio pop out while browsing the site. Audio pop out player could be open by audio page from audio navigation or embedded audio in article or a section. This new feature is only for bigger screens, it means mobile users will not get this pop out.
The responsible administrator of sites that have audio broadcast should translate the new keywords in Site Localization.
