How to Load MP3 files on iPad using Voice Dream Reader

Here's a useful step by step tutorial from a blind old time radio listener on how to load MP3 old time radio shows onto an iPad:

I have a number of old time radio show series on my ipad mini 4.  I like voice dream reader because it will remember where I left off in each series I listen to.
  1. If not in a ZIP archive format. You should compress the directory holding the mp3's files into a ZIP file.
  2. Connect the iOS device to your computer with a USB cable.
  3. Open the iTunes application and select the iOS device button at the right of the main window. 
  4. Select the "Apps" radio button on the main screen.
  5. At the bottom of the Apps screen is a section titled "File Sharing" with a column list of apps. One of those will be Voice Dream Reader app select it.
  6. Press the "Add…" button located in the bottom right of the screen. This will give you a dialog to select the ZIP file from step one. The zip will then be added to the app.
  7. Go to Voice Dream Reader, now you'll find some thing like: This Is Your FBI DISK 1. . forty-four hours, nineteen minutes, thirteen seconds2% READ. Zipped Audio Format.
