Changing the Sounds Related to Windows Events

Windows 98 associates different sounds with each event. For example, if an error occurs, the default sound is a chime. You can change this setting so that a different sound bite plays for any particular event. In fact, you can record your own sounds if you have a microphone for your sound card. For instance, you can record a WAV file that says, "An error has occurred." This kind of customization is great for sight-impaired users.

Only sound files in the WAV format can be associated with Windows events. WAV files have the extension .WAV. For your own WAV files to show up in the Name drop-down box, you must store them in the Media folder under the Windows folder; for example, c:\windows\media\My sound.wav.
