(too late to try out tonight) I fear merely doing that would result in the file coming up in a real or media player box and starting to play, separate from the picture; which would be no good. And as I've said, I've seen one that works in IE but the effect is spoilt in opera and firefox by you being invited to download the audio file. I want the sound to come on immediately whether you invite it or not!
Opera and F'fox handle media slightly differently, it's not impossible to get around. I believe that there is a script method of playing an embedded sound without a plugin. The WMP plugin would do precisely what you want to avoid.
Yeah, that's easy to do, again by applying a hotspot and choosing a pop-up window from the link box, then customising the size of it.
Don't give up though, because I know that this is doable; I have seen websites that play a sound on a particular action and they work in Firefox.
Speaking of actions, that has jogged my memory; have you thought about the actions tab in the properties pallette? This allows you to assign scripted behaviours to specific mouse-hovers, clicks and so on. Might well be the answer!
I'm ticking this one because I've started another one progressing from here.I've given up on the sound. The furthest I got was to get it to play automatically when the page loaded -but that was no good because I needed it to play when you actually clicked on the chosen selected area. So I'm working on popup messages now - see other post.
