Hi Folks,

This use of audio files begins to move into the realm of the Synchronized
Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) This is a W3C recommendation. This
is also the technique the DAISY Consortium (http://www.daisy.org) is using
for development of Digital Talking Books.

 The .wav file is very large, but various compression techniques can reduce
the size (mpeg, Realaudio) and these files could also be streamed.
