I guess the HTML5 audio-tag will solve all (!!) your problems (in future)
It will play *.ogg if the browser supports it, otherwise it will try *.mp3.
Drawback is both files audio.mp3 and audio.ogg should be downloadable.

Furthermore I would always avoid the usage of flash, but that's mny personal view...

Kind regards,

It should be useful to have an "personnal preferences" for the audio :
read by quicktime (one leave the personal computer to do what it wants) or by a wims plugin. (flash). I have always this demand from the "language" teacher.
This option will be treated by the slib (if the programmer uses it, if not, do nothing).

Have you a better idea ?
