    Moved to a more appropriate forum

    I don't know if it's possible, but it'd sure annoy me

    Actually, I'm also interested in exactly the same thing.

    Why?!? Well here's the deal; I work at a High School and have a webpage come up when the webfilter filters out a site and blocks it. At the moment it has a large red box with text in it flash constantly so that it can easily grab the attention of a teacher. Unfortunately, because of the layout of a lot of the IT rooms, it's impossible for a teacher to stand in one spot and see every computer screen. So in that respect I'd also like to have a sound play to alert the teacher when a student is trying to access something that they shouldn't be during lesson time.

    I'd prefer the internal PC Speaker to work because not all of the computers in school have speakers, and those that do tend to end up with the speakers being unplugged by students.

    Is there anyone who knows if there's a script available for a webpage to cause the PC internal-speaker to beep? (Preferably without creating error messages lol).


    Thanks.

    Without the use of something client-side (activex, etc) I would highly doubt this would be possible!

    According to this article it should be possible. Dunno if there is a program you could create or download for this or not. Did some research but didnt see anything.
