Adding sound to an application can make the application more efficient to use. By using sounds to draw attention at critical points, you can help users avoid mistakes and notify them when a time-consuming operation concludes.
The Waveform Audio application programming interface (API) provides two ways to play sound in an application, the PlaySound function, and the waveIn and waveOut functions.
In This Section
- Using the PlaySound Function
The PlaySound function provides many of the capabilities that are necessary for playing waveform audio sounds.
- Using the Waveform Audio Interface
The waveIn and waveOut functions give your application exact control over waveform audio input/output (I/O) devices.
