You can embed the adobe plug-in into IE (5.0 or 5.5) which supports
HTML+TIME. The 5.5 version supports the HTML integration profile of SMIL 2.0
(as of the most recent working drafts - IE 5.5 shipped before SMIL 2.0 was
complete).

This allows you to easily declare audio on the page. Unfortunately, it does
not provide good synchronization with any animation in your SVG, because of
the plug-in boundary.

You can install IE 5.5 from
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/download/ie55.htm and try it out.

You'll find an introductory article about some of the SMIL 2.0 support
(called HTML+TIME) in IE on
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/behaviors/htmltime.asp.
