Triggering Server Side Sounds via CGI Posts
Posted on 2004-08-27
Is there a way to trigger a Perl script to play an audible sound on its server when a CGI POST is made to that script from a web client clicking a submt button on a web page?
From what I can tell, IIS opens a special IUSR session and so no sound is heard server side, even though a script may play a .WAV file.
Is there a way to allow the Perl script to make any sounds it may play go to the server's speaker?
We have a Perl script that opens a speech synthesis program and speaks whatever someone types onto our web page. However, nothing is heard is the Perl script is run as a CGI app, but we can hear it fine if it is run from the command line.
Thank you for your time.
