I am writing a script that needs to download and play audio files (based on vocabulary words) that are located in a separate .xls file. I want to download the audio for proper pronunciation using Dictionary.com but cannot figure a systmatic way to get the audio.
For example the url for the word "fatuity" is
But for the word "fun" is
how can I query Dictionary.com and download the associated audio? Any suggestions?

Framey Sam: is the "correct pronunciation" something different than you would get by downloading the audio file the way Naqi described in the question?
