Keystroke Sound Effect?
I was sitting around watching the sci-fi channel, and nerd/geek movies, as usual, and see how all the keyboards played some kind of sound effect on the keystroke event. Now I was wondering if it is possible to bind a sound file .wav/.mp3/etc to the keydown event.
I can think of a rather simple solution for IceWM ( icewm.org ):
in ~/.icewm/keys add some lines like this:
If you have some special keys(like the "windows-key" or some "www"/"email" button) that aren't bound to any functions this thread might be of help if you want to assign them with a keycode:
# the file contains comments on the key namings at the start
key "XF86Search" play "/mnt/private/frekla/sounds/Computer/Specify Search Parameters.wav"
key "F13" play /mnt/private/frekla/sounds/Beeps/beep.wav
(I'm a Trekkie so I know the desire for those "natural/logcal" sounds the computer should emit :) To bad I don't know any voice commander for linux :/ )
scientica this is the aplication you need:) :
