Chapter 12. Rollovers > Using sound

Using sound

Sounds can be used to grab a viewer's attention and literally amplify areas of a Web page. Sounds can be attached to the Over, Down, and Out states, but not to the Normal state. (Read more about sounds on pages 188–189.)

To attach a sound to a rollover:

1.
Create and select a rollover object that has at least an Over state (Fig. 1).

2.
On the Rollovers palette, select the Over state (Fig. 2).

3.
Show the Sounds palette.

4.
Click on a sound, then click the Apply Sound button at the bottom of the Sounds palette. (Fig. 3) A tiny "-" (minus sign) will appear on the Sound button on the Rollovers palette instead of a "+" (plus sign). (Fig. 4)

5.
Optional: Click on the Down state on the Rollovers palette, then repeat the previous step.

6.
Click the Preview mode button (Q), roll over the button, then click on it. Click the Edit mode button when you're finished previewing (Q).

Note:If you apply a sound to both the Over and the Down states, when you release the button from the Down state, the Over state sound will be repeated.

▸ If you forget which sound was applied to which state, expand the Changes list for a state—the name of the sound will be listed as an "Audible" property (Fig. 4).

▸ Use the SWF format to export objects with attached sounds.
