We would like to customize the event sounds in Circulation Module. For example, I want to be able to change the sound when an "Item is on Hold" event occurs.
Below is a general explanation. Try “OnHold”, for example,
Activate audio warnings via the CIRC/TAB/circ.ini file, section [ErrorAction]:
 Check that the sound you choose is defined in Windows to produce an audio signal
[a] open (in WinXP Home) Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Sounds. For example, for the 'asterisk' try chimes.wav.
[b] verify that you can hear sounds on your PC.
 In circ.ini, section [ErrorAction], define if you are using a default Sound (“S”) or using a wav file (“F”). Add 'Y,[S/F],' next to the preferred action, together with the sound/file you prefer. The format is “<WarningName>=<sound-choice>”
[a] “N” for no sound
[b] “Y, S, soundname” for a default Windows sound. Some default Windows XP sound names are: question, exclamation, ok, hand, beep, and asterisk.
[c] “Y, F, filename” for a downloaded or locally created sound. Whatever the source, the sound file should be placed in the ALEPHCOM/SOUND directory (you may need to create this directory on your computer). **Note: you need to do this only if you want a sound which has no Windows soundname; otherwise do [b] (above).**
 Restart the CIRC client.
These are the options available:
See SKB-8192-8536 for explanations of specific actions.
