    Netscape won't play my wav file

    Hi, I am hoping that someone can help me with this: I used Dreamweaver MX 2004 to create a basic HTML website for my client. He wants the links to make a sound when visitors click on them. I have used the behaviors panel to apply the onClick Play Sound command to each link. It works just fine in IE, but not on Netscape. Is there a code that I need to add to make this work? I know of the code that you add for background sound, but I don't need that one. Please help!

    Can you show us the code you are using, or the URL?

    Actually I have some bad news regarding your site in IE.

    I currently have Quicktime as my default wav player, and every time I click a link on your site, the page is replaced by the Quicktime player playing the sound.

    Unfortunately I need to go out now so I can't help any further. Hopefully someone else can help, otherwise I'll check back in as soon as I can.

    Change to Flash buttons

    Do you think that changing the buttons to Flash buttons will help? I know that there are limitations to this, such as needing the flash player to play Flash content and types of link limitations. Perhaps there shouldn't be sound at all!

    Without doubt, my advice to your client would be to forget the sound thing. It's too problematic and doesn't really add anything to a site (IMO). A lot of people actually get annoyed by it. Basically I think there's not much to gain and a lot to lose.

    If they insist on sound, Flash is a reasonable solution. Much easier to deal with and safer, but make sure you have text link alternatives.
