Perhaps I should have realised from the fact that these are the original recordings of speeches, but the recording quality of some of these is awful and very distracting. The speeches are presented with no introduction, so unless you recognise the speech by the voice of the speaker, or the content, you will have no way of knowing who is speaking. Iexpected an introduction to each one or at least a title, but navigating this is impossible.

I expect some brief introduction on who is going to speak and the historical circunstances of the speech..there is nothing but the speeches.. very frustrating..
