Dotster has apparently an affiliate program with this company called pulsesonifier that enables sound on your web-site.

Is sound eg, Welcome! effective in giving your site the extra edge? Any experiences?

Thanks.

I'm looking at a web-site that gives the experience of interaction, not one of a concert hall :)

When you register, a voice says 'Thank you'. When you enter, a voice says 'Welcome'. When you leave, it says 'Please visit us again'

I'm increasingly fascinated by the ability of human voice to enhance a user experience.

I remember the early days when you go into a geocities web-site and a midi always greets you :dead:

Can human voice work?

That stuff works well on broadband but is very hit and more missed on 56k. If you want to reach people, you have to keep it lite.

This sound stuff breaks up, slows the browser down. There is no smooth interaction yet. If the problems it is having delivering the multimedia message draws attention away from what it is advertising in a kind of - thats annoying and pretensious way, its not gonna work. You need lite, smooth, versatile and imagination/concept.....

But your idea is really excellent imo. It would be like a hit movie....
