Offering A Sound Via Helper Application
If you have a sound you'd like to offer, follow this
<A HREF="http://www.yoursite.com/filename.wav"> Click Here</A>
Notice it's nothing more than a
simple link pointing to the sound file. Place the sound file in the same directory as the page that
calls for it and
the browser will take it from there. You just sit back and
watch it happen. Just be sure to FTP transfer the sound file to your site
as "binary" or "raw data," as any other way can corrupt it.
I should also say here that by making this hypertext link to a
sound file you are taking the chance that the person viewing the page on your site has an
appropriate helper application. Anymore, that's not a bad bet. A browser is now pretty well
equipped for sound as soon as the user installs it.
