Re: SVG 1.2 Declarative audio on event


thanks so much for pointing me to Example: media01.svg

is the text of the title linked to a sample.

User interface events that occur because of user actions that  
generate key presses (as opposed to text - for example, function  
keys, key presses for a game, etc) are called key events.
