Running a Sound File in Pocket IE, in Response to a asp.net event

I have an asp.net website where a person enters an item, and the website basically says, "yes", "no" or "not found."  They are running the website on handheld devices, using Pocket IE (the device has an onboard scanner, to input much of the data via bar code.)

Now they want it to make a different sound depending on whether the result was "yes" "no" or "not found".  The application is C#/SQL.  Although I have found a few solutions that work in Internet Explorer, none of them work in Pocket IE.  It is important that I trigger the sound from C# (as the rules governing the yes/no/not found are there), and the sound must play automatically (without the user having to download it or otherwise interact with the screen.)  It would be OK to force them to download the sound files to their local device once, but I don't want it to prompt them every time!  

Any ideas?

Well, that solution didn't quite work, because it was intended for installed mobile applications, as opposed to running in a website.  But it gave me better keywords to Google.

I did eventually find a solution, based on this:
http://www.geekpedia.com/tutorial152_Embedding-Windows-Media-Player-into-a-web-page.html

It only was possible because they were running Windows mobile devices, so I knew they'd have media player.  I made the media player hidden, so it wasn't apparent to them what was going on.

I also had to add this solution:

http://handheld.softpedia.com/get/Internet-Utilities/PressOK-67035.shtml

Because without it, every time it went to play the sound file, it would prompt me, "Press OK to load the content of this page" (which was stupid-annoying, since there wasn't an option for "cancel", so it was going to load the page no matter what I did!)

There are probably better solutions out there, but this worked for me, for now.
