Any way to download audio?

Sorry if this has been asked, I couldn't find any search function for the forum. I was just wondering if its possible to download the audio for japanese words. When I right click there is no "save as" option.

The sound files are linked in the HTML code. But they have been gifted to us by Tofugu and they own the rights to the audio files.

I know it's not as nice as the audio on this site, but you can hear how a word is pronounced using Google Translate or Sound of Text: http://soundoftext.com/

Go to where it says "Play audio" and right click. I'll be using the word 英語 (えいご) in this example. After right clicking, select "Inspect"/"Inspect element". After selecting that, a side panel screen should pop up with a bunch of HTML code. You'll automatically be taken to one highlighted in blue. Above that one, there will be a block of code that says ". Click the down arrow on that, and several links will drop down (with a cloudfront.net in the URL). It should say <source src="http://d1vjc5dkcd3yh2.cloudfront.net/audio/8d5bcf2b454c254671aaa5a8bd9c2272.mp3". Now click on that, and a new tab will open with the audio recording! All you have to do now is click the little download button. Here's a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/R3ltpJG.png. Happy downloading!

*the block of code will say <a class="class="concept_audio concept_light-status_link..." just to clarify
