Replace alert system sound with custom sound

Hello, I'm trying to find a way to replace the user's alert system sound with a custom sound in the following script. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2. var monitor = setTimeout("alert('The monitor is working');",0);
  3. </script>

hi ...

unfortunatly or better fortunatly i think you cannot override the system-sound ... but you may open a custom alert-message with window.open(params); and play a sound you like with that ... but when using the standards alert then you have to live with the standards alert-sound too :) ... its by design - a desired behaviour ... because you shouldn't be able to change sytsem-settings on the client-machine with your code on a webpage ... imagine what someone might do in case that would be possible ... i think you wouldn't like that :) ... and nobody does.

kind regards

Oh, when I said that, I only meant to change the tone that played on my site, not to actually change the settings on the client computer. But you've been a huge help in pointing me to the right direction. Thank you.
