If not used properly, sound on web pages can be distracting and frustrating to the audience.  Sound should be used sparingly on the PSU web site and only when the presence of audio files will enhance the existing content.

When sound is used it should never begin playing automatically unless the audience has been informed in advance that they are visiting a page with audio (such as a link titled “Listen to Professor Smiths’ latest performance” which opens to photos and audio of a performance).

In all cases, controls must be present to allow users to stop and start the audio file as they choose.
