Chapter 6. UltraDev’s Graphic and Multim... > Adding Sounds to Your Pages

Adding Sounds to Your Pages

With UltraDev 4, placing sounds on your pages is just as easy as adding movies or animations. Depending on your needs, UltraDev provides the ability to control the sound using a behavior, embed certain formats in your page that will play in any browser, or link to a file that uses a third-party plug-in such as RealNetworks’ RealPlayer.

Caution

Are Sounds Appropriate? When considering the addition of sound to your site, take into account whether it will assist the visitor or merely become annoying. For instance, the site you are building in these exercises focuses on old-time radio shows. At certain points in the visitor’s navigation of the site she might want to listen to a sample clip of one of the products. In this case, audio would be appropriate. However, bombarding the visitor with a rendition of the latest top 40 hit rendered in MIDI format would probably be less than professional and may even cause the visitor to leave.
