I am having a little trouble with sound on mouseover in my website, if anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.
The link to my site is www.trecall.com.
There are two menus, and each menu has a different sound that supposed to be heard on mouseover.
Firstly, sometimes when I open the site, the sound is not heard at all, and sometimes it is. Why is that?
Also, there are two different sounds, one on the top menu and one on the main menu. When I put my mouse on one button from one menu, and hear that sound, the same sound will be heard the next time a mouseover on a button, regardless if that's the right sound for that button or not!
And one more thing: The sound on the main animated menu is not heard correctly. It's supposes to be one clear sound, but it usually comes out choppy. How come?

If anyone can help me out with this, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.

dont do it, sounds are annoying, but if you must ...

Firstly, sometimes when I open the site, the sound is not heard at all, and sometimes it is. Why is that?

the sound has likely not downloaded at that time, whatever sound it is has to download to the user before it plays, there is latency in that, which may be longer than the time the user has onmousover
a possible fix is to force download of the file either by a script or <img src='filename.wav' style='display:none;' width='0' height='0'> any of a dozen forcefiledownload tricks near </body></html> the endo of the file

Also, there are two different sounds, one on the top menu and one on the main menu. When I put my mouse on one button from one menu, and hear that sound, the same sound will be heard the next time a mouseover on a button, regardless if that's the right sound for that button or not!

dunno sorry

And one more thing: The sound on the main animated menu is not heard correctly. It's supposes to be one clear sound, but it usually comes out choppy. How come?

bandwidth issues, or proceesor use %age issues, either the download speed is maxing out or the processor is reaching the point where it cannot timeslice enough to complete all the tasks to it esp, running the animation

If anyone can help me out with this, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.
