Hi,

I was a software developer; now a stay at home mom for my kid. I am trying to develop a web page for my kid for him to learn different stuffs. Eventually, I would like to put it in the web so that other kids can use it.
As it is for kids, it involves lot of audios. For example, 1 page has a lot of flag images and when each flag is clicked, the kid gets to hear the country name.

My question is
1. Is it possible to make the sound without opening a media player. If
so how?
I cannot use <embed > because, i want the sound when the flag is
clicked not when the play button in the embed image is clicked.

2. Due to lot of audio files, will it take the page a long time to load?
if so, how to make it efficient?

Please guide me in this.

Regards,
Jay.

I found Mark Huckvale's Demonstration of Different ways to Play a Sound from a Web Page very useful.
