First, you will require an mpman MP3 player.
This software was developed and tested using an MP-FUB34, however a browse through the user guides for the various other players suggests that pretty much the entire range supports lyrics files.

On the computer side of things, you will require:
- A machine comfortably running a useful version of Windows. Say Windows 98SE as a
- An MP3 codec. You will probably have one if you have installed MSIE 5 or MSIE
6, or a codec pack, or if your computer is capable of playing DVDs.
For older machines - please note that just because you can 'play' MP3s does not mean that
your computer has a codec installed. It is possible that you are using software which

WaxLyrical cannot operate if there is no MP3 support on your computer.
