Dear Gérard,

Do you happen to know how to include sound
clips in pdftex too?  I have been looking
for a way to be able to play short sound
clips, of music, speech, and sometimes other
sounds, in presentations, without having to
leave the slide viewer (Adobe, for eg).

Seeing your code for including video clips
made me wonder if you might know about
sound clips too.

I'd be very grateful for any help or
thoughts you might be able to offer on

Best regards,

>/A << /Mode /Repeat >>}
>"/Poster true" and "/Mode /Repeat" are optional. The dimensions
