Sound Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

1. Which browsers support sound, built-in?
2.
I clicked on the sound file, but my browser didn't know what to do with the sound file and asked me to save or open. Now what?
3.
Can I redistribute these sound files?


1. Most web browsers have sound capabilities built-in; Netscape Navigator 3.x (and higher) and Internet Explorer 3.x (and higher) have sound applications that launch inside the browser when you click on a sound file.

If this doesn't happen and you are prompted to save the sound or launch it using an application, then you either need to save the sound file to your hard drive or you can specify a local application (such as WHAM Player for the PC or SoundMachine for the Macintosh).

If you need a sound application or sound plug-in for your browser, it's best to check a shareware site (such as http://shareware.cnet.com/) or to go directly to your browser's manufacturer (such as http://home.netscape.com/ or http://www.microsoft.com/) for a compatible plug-in.

 

2. If your browser asks you to Save, Select Application, Get Info, or Cancel, then you have a bunch of options from which to choose:
- Save: will save the file to your hard drive, so that you can play it later with the application of your choice
- Select Application: will will ask you to specify a program in which to open the file; it will try to launch the sound file once you've selected the application
- Get Info: will usually send you to a page on related plug-ins, at the website for your browser's manufacturer
- Cancel: will cancel the operation, neither saving nor launching the sound file

If you need a sound application or sound plug-in for your browser, it's best to check a shareware site (such as http://www.shareware.com/) or to go directly to your browser's manufacturer (such as http://home.netscape.com/ or http://www.microsoft.com/).

 

3. You cannot redistribute, broadcast, or otherwise reproduce the sound files contained on this site. To do so would be a violation of Houghton Mifflin's copyright.
