Playing a sound when a field is updated

P: n/a
I have a request from a client to play a sound when a specific <input
type=text> field has been updated with new data from a server side script.
They have not specified the sound ( yet ), so I'm thinking of using one of
the standard MS .wav files. I know someone will respond that some user will
be running unix/linux or mac's, but that is not the case here. This is an
intranet application, and the client has standardized on i.e 6.0+ on windows
based machines. So cross browser compatibility is not an issue.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you,

In this case why wouldn't use the old good <bgsound> tag (with the source
wav on the server)? As I understand, nobody sits on 14/28 dial-up here, so
40-80 Kb of extra download is not an issue.

Standard security model will not allow you to access local drive so easy, so
you have to either make an HTA page (with potentially confusing to the end
user permission requests), or adjust security settings on each intranet
client.

<bgsound> seems much more straightforward here
