Foreword

Storing all the sound contents of your web site inside a Flash movie is a very efficient way to sonify a site. The main advantage of this approach is that you have a single resource to extract sound data from, thus simplifying programming. What you are going to learn in this document is how to create a framework that eases the update of the sound contents and allows you to keep up with layout and content changes made to a web site.

To follow this document it is strongly recommended that you have a working knowledge of JavaScript programming, Flash movie creation and HTML syntax. Although this document is not intended to provide you with copy and paste JavaScript code, the essential code needed to create this framework is provided and the logic behind it is explained. Of course this document is not for the casual programmer but, we think that the explanations given here will give you a good jumpstart to sonify and maintain sonified web sites easily.

Another thing, the code provided here is given as an example without warranties to be useful, accurate, concise, elegant or fit your programming needs. Use it at your own risk without Soundtown or me being liable for any loss of data, malfunctioning of your computer or code or whatever bad thing happens to you or your equipment. This code is given free for educational purposes only and should not be used in commercial applications. Also, all trademarks in this text are property of their respective owners and Soundtown does not claim any right on them. That’s enough for a foreword, let’s get to work.

Featured Flash FLA

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
