Hi, Robert, Do you consider presentations to be a business application? Robert M. Muench wrote:

Think of a presentation (e.g., the example on the RT site) which might include suitable audio clips either as: 1) background music 2) per page audio sound bite 3) on-demand (e.g. button click) audio information Also consider the possibility of audio feedback in an O/S neutral manner, such as alerts to signal completion of a long-running process, receipt of a new message, timeout on an error dialogue to which the user has not responded in a timely manner, etc. It seems reasonable to consider MP3 as a "generic" audio format for use an *any* situation requiring audible signals/information by analogy with the fact that JPEG and PNG are "generic" graphic formats that can be used in any situation requiring non-text display of information (whether charts, photos, or just eye candy...)
