After starting up the FTW Transcriber, there are various ways you can open files.
On the interface, click Open.
If the file you want to play is on your computer, click Open File on Local Disk.
If the file you want to play is hosted on a remote server, click Open File From Remote. A box will open. Paste into that box the URL of the remote file. This will work only if the remote server is configured in a way that allows remote playback. Here is a sample link you can use to test:
You can test that link by clicking Open, Open File From Remote, and then copying and pasting the above link.
You can also open files that are stored in your Playlist, by clicking Open, Open File From Playlist. For details, click here.
