To download the file the recording needs to play in “real time” on your computer. That means if your recording is two hours long the recording needs to play for two hours as the file downloads to your computer. To accomplish a successful download, it is best practice to have an extra computer on hand dedicated solely for this task. Please make sure you have a stable internet connection and your ANR portal log in credentials handy.
