Jim Van Zandt noticed a similar problem with .au files when using the play
script which comes with emacspeak.  One way you may be able to solve this
without converting sound files and changing auditory icon bindings is to
install sox and adjust the EMACSPEAK_PLAY_PROGRAM variable to point to the
play script that comes with sox.  Packages for sox are available for both
the Debian and Red Hat Linux distributions.  The sox home page is at:
