Requirements for Sound Files

TAlh has the capability of annunciating alarms by playing soundfiles. If no sound files are available, the system beep is used to annunciate alarms.

Requirements for Sound Files


Sound files must be wave files with the extension  '.wav'.
Sound files must be located in the configuration directory, i.e. the directory where the alarm handler configuration file resides.

If the alarm handler has an instance name <instance> defined, TAlh will attempt to load the sound files
<instance>MINOR.wav
<instance>MAJOR.wav
<instance>INVALID.wav

If these files cannot be located an attempt is made to load the sound files
AlarmMINOR.wav
AlarmMAJOR.wav
AlarmINVALID.wav

If these files cannot be located TAlh reverts to the system beep.
