The SWF format supports fading a sound track before a complete stop. In order to sonify your page, follow this recipe:
  • Make sure you have the Flash player. 96% of the surfing population already has it. Download.
  • Include
flashsound.js in the HEAD section.
  • Create a flashsound object in the
  • HEAD section.
  • Embed your swf file in the
  • BODY section.
  • Create an anchor tag and set the
  • onclick event handler to the TGotoAndPlay() method.

    Here is an example that plays a funky music which you can fade and stop:

    Play the funky music

    Fade and stop the funky music

    Here is the source code:

      <SCRIPT SRC="flashsound.js"></SCRIPT>
        var mySoundObj = new FlashSound();
    <P><A HREF="javascript://" onclick="mySoundObj.TGotoAndPlay('/fistycuffs', 'start')">Play the funky music</A>
    <P><A HREF="javascript://" onclick="mySoundObj.TGotoAndPlay('/fistycuffs', 'fadetostop')">Fade and stop the funky music</A>
