No support for musical tones?

This article [1] has shown me how to playing system sounds and .wav files
via a web page. Very nice to know. It got me wondering if we could somehow
play one or more tones of a musical scale somehow without downloading or
streaming files? I'm ignorant about it but I though Windows had native
support for generating beeps as tonal values.

You could certainly use the WaveOut API to play sounds from an ASP.NET
webpage, but I doubt that it would accomplish much since they would be
playing on the Web server, not for the client machine whose browser is
requesting the page.
Hope that helps.

Peter, are you the kind of guy who tells kids there really ain't no Santa
Claus? ;-)

All this hardware and software and we can't build something like a captcha
that emits tonal values? This kind of sucks though ainna?

I've also found it interesting that to my knowledge nobody is offering a
sound library as a download to enable their web application to function with
an improved audible user interface.

Phil,
You could very easily build a captcha that emits musical tones. They would
just need to be wav or other media files that could be set to the src
property of the BGSOUND tag. There are other more "cross-browser" ways to do
it as well.

On some of my pages, for example: http://tranchant.plus.com/guitar/chord-tutorial/music-theory ....I refer to musical note names a lot in the text, such as A, F# and Eb. Whilst cycling in to work this morning, it suddenly struck me that a screen reader or speech browser would have a hard time with this. I guess the user would end up with "F-pound" (for US speech browsers) and "Ebb" or something.

I'm very surprised actually, to see that Python rejected the use of fractional/rational numbers.
