Auditory icons (again!)


Why do yu want to use that function for your auditory icons?

Have you got native sound support compiled into emacs 21? As far as i
know, there are no emacs pacages distributed with any Linux
distributions which have native sound support compiled in. This means
that if you want to use this function, you need to re-compile emacs 21
with sound support.

Have a look at the emacspeak-sounds.el file and work out which
function fits with your installation/configuration.
