VedaBase for Mac

We had a workaround with the help of a tech volunteer, and it worked fine for a long time. The problem with Apple is that they keep changing the rules. 

Folio Views that runs VedaBase is not native to Mac. 

We have the following suggestions, which work seamless: 

Option A:  Parallels® Desktop 17 for Mac - Windows on Mac - Official Site

Option B:  Run Microsoft Windows software on Mac, Linux and Chrome OS

Thank you.  

How to acquire the audio without downloading:

Receive all 3,804 original audio files [1966–1977, dictations and music] on a USB Drive for $75, including shipping and handling worldwide. Includes the latest VedaBase 2019 NFO update.
