audio alert: make a web page beep
Posted on 2001-09-10
i would have thought this was easy, but it just doesn't want to work for me. i have an on-the-fly web page that refreshes itself automatically, but *only* if there's new info to be shown. since a user might have several open browsers i want the page to cause a windows beep when it loads. this way, when it refreshes with new data, the user is alerted to check it.
i've tried stuff like:
i'm running perl 5 on a unix box. any suggestions?
