Audible or Sound Messages during alerts or Warnings ?

We are in the process of developing a bar code scanning system for a life sciences company. The Bar code scanning system we are building has a requirement to make a "Noise" or "Sound" whenever a Lab Technician scans a duplicate bar code within last 30 minutes. We are displaying an alert message but an additional "Beep sound will alert the technicians to stop and check for duplicates. ??

I think the best way to do this would be to create a custom Javascript widget to play the sound. Unfortunately I don't think there are any existing widgets in the app store that can do this.


Maybe you could try it with the HTML Snippet widget and the HTML 5 audio tag?

<audio src="beep.mp3" autoplay>
<p>Your browser does not support the audio element </p>

Not compatible with all browsers though.
