Stop browser 'refresh' sound

Hi,

I have a page which regularly refreshes itself; when this happens an annoying 'click' is heard.

Is there any way to disable this?

I think that I may need to use cancelBubble, but not sure which event triggers this sound.

Also, I do not want to turn off the Start Navigation or Complete Navigation sounds in the sound schemes.

Thanks...

No. It's not YOUR setting. It's the user's SYSTEM setting. You have no control over it.

Yes, I understand that, hence the not wanting/being able to change their registry settings.  However, I am pretty sure that by using a mechanism such as cancelbubble the event that triggers the sound can be intercepted.

I was wondering if anybody knew the event that triggers this sound.

You can't intercept the sound -- it's NOT anything you have access to. It's not controlled by the BROWSER, it's controlled by the SYSTEM.

Surely the browser informs the system that a certain event has occurred that results in the system playing the sound??

The correct answer to some questions is "you can't do that"

I accept that some answers are: 'You can't do that' - but I did post a comment request an explanation, with no response....

Re-read the webwoman's comments and you will see that he/she gave you an explanation and I quote:

"No. It's not YOUR setting. It's the user's SYSTEM setting. You have no control over it."

And again:

"You can't intercept the sound -- it's NOT anything you have access to. It's not controlled by the BROWSER, it's controlled by the SYSTEM."

What more explanation do you need.  This is a client (read browser) setting that the server does not and should not have any control over.

I'll reiterate - the browser (client) surely must send a message to the system to initiate the sound.

I'm not after a solution, just an explanation in a less agressive tone would be appreciated !

I am afraid it does not (and should not).
