onmousover sound confined to an image map

I got the script for onmousover sounds. I have added an image map to the image, and I would like the sound to activate only when the mouse is over the image map area. Can someone revise the onmouseover script for image maps? Example: when mouse passes over the nose area on an image of a persons face, "pickit.wav" (stop picking my nose) would play. Thanks in advance.

Sure you just put the onMouseOver event handler that you already have right into the image map area.
Here is an example:
<CENTER><IMG SRC="images/sub_pages/butns.gif" usemap="#bottom" border=0 WIDTH="590" HEIGHT="17"></CENTER>
<MAP NAME="bottom">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="78,1,161,17" HREF="index3.html" target="_top"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Main Menu'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="162,1,207,17" HREF="staff.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Staff'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="208,1,280,17" HREF="facilities.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Facilities'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="281,1,340,17" HREF="clients.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Clients'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="341,1,409,17" HREF="portfolio.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Portfolio'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="410,1,461,17" HREF="links.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Links'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
<AREA SHAPE=RECT COORDS="462,1,517,17" HREF="awards.html" target="main"
onMouseOver="window.status='goto: Awards'; return true"
onMouseOut="window.status=st; return true">
</MAP>

Of course your onMouseOver and onMouseOut events will be different...  Also be sure NOT to surround the image with a link.  That may mess up the map and mouseover events.

Hope this helps!  If you have the sound script and have troubles with it post your code and I can debug for you.
Best of luck!
