Audiotape problem

I have a few audio cassette home recordings, from way back. I wish to transcribe them to CD, but the speed is too fast. Is there a way of reducing the speed ??

what are you using to get them on the pc

I'm transferring them from stereo via Audacity

In Audacity under effects/change speed.

are they "too fast"?

Is it when they are played on the cassette player, (which is obviously a cassette issue), or after they have been turned to digital?

If they are OK coming off cassette I's suspect it's a problem with the sample rate... possible "recorded" at a sample rate of 32000, and being played back at 44100 or 48000.

(Though I'm not sure how you'd achieve this!)

When I recorded them, back in the 90's, the machine that I used then must have been running a bit slow, so now when I play them on a modern player they sound fast.

How fast Dave ie chipmunks speed or just a bit . If only slight an none of the previous suggestions work you could try varying the pitch
