Sharon, are you trying to copy and paste the smileys in the top section of the talking smileys message??
Those are NOT copy and paste-able!
To use the talking smileys with the glossy blue Play button, you need to copy the URL and insert it in your message through the Insert Flash button in the message editor. I wrote a tutorial to explain how to do that here.
If you want to copy and paste a talking smiley to use in a message, you need to go down the page to where the static images are with the "Hear me talk" buttons. THOSE are copy and paste-able.
Go ahead and test both methods here, and if you have any trouble, let me know. I tried to make the instructions for using the talking smileys as clear as I could, but it may not be translatable to each person`s brain. I know I get tongue-tied sometimes when I try to explain things.
It would be so helpful if you would test the talking smileys for me, thanks!
