    Circulation audio warnings

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    In looking through the upgrade notes for version 20 I came across the following: "In addition to the events that can have audio warnings assigned to them, it is now possible to assign an audio warning to sound when an item that has been placed on hold is returned."

    We would like to implement this. Can you also tell me what the other "events" are that can have audio warnings assigned to them? Specifically, we would like to have a different audio for check-out and check-in. Is this possible?

    Circulation audio warnings and their implementation is described in KB's 8192-2135, 8192-8536, and 16384-8226.

    Following KB 8192-2135, a sound file needs to be placed in the ..\alephcom\sound directory *only* when a downloaded or locally-created sound is being used (8192-2135, 2c).

    If a default Windows sound is being specified (8192-2135, 2b), then you simply specify the soundname in the [ErrorAction] section of circ.ini: no need for any file; Windows already has the sound.

    For instance, you might specify this in circ.ini:
