How To: Embed sound in your web page using Dreamweaver

Embed sound in your web page using Dreamweaver

This video shows how to easily record your voice and insert a sound podcast to your WebQuest or webpage using Dreamweaver. It shows how to have the sound play on the same page without auto starting. The tutor initially goes to the Start button and in All programs selects Accessories. Next he selects Sound Recorder from the Entertainment option and records his voice reading out the content of the page. He then saves the file in the folder called websites creating a subfolder in the name of 'sound'. Next he goes to the WebQuest using Dreamweaver and places the cursor right under the Title of the page to add the sound file to the webpage. Next he selects Common's tab and selects the plug-in option. Now it asks to select for file and he selects the sound file he saved. That brings up the plug-in below the title. He doesn't want that sound to be automatically played when someone goes to the page instead he wants to create some options to play the embedded sound. Now he clicks on the plug-in picture and option show at the top of the page. Next he opens the split screen and edits the highlighted part contains sound task.wav. After the sound task.wav he inserts a script "autoplay=false loop=false" to stop the automatic playback of the sound file for that webpage. After that he goes to the plug-in picture and stretch that little wider. Next he presses F12 and save the changes. Now when he loads the page again there appears the plug-in in the form of audio player and one can control the sound embed to the webpage. This is a good option for the exceptional students or students who may require help with reading.
