Xounds is a haxie that brings back Appearance Sounds to Mac OS X. Tired of silence? Want audio feedback when you navigate through menus or drag your windows around? Xounds will convert your existing Mac OS 8 or 9 soundsets and make Mac OS X a better place to work in.
Plays sounds when you work - when you pull down menus, drag windows, select menu items, empty trash, and more.
Assign freely which events you want to be voiced and which not.
Assign any AIFF sound to supported events.
Ability to import Mac OS 8 or 9 sound sets for use in Mac OS X.
Stereo or mono output - so you actually hear on what side you have pulled the menu down.
Exclude list to remove certain applications from being affected by Xounds.
Easy to configure as it comes in usual Preference Pane form, accessible through System Preferences.
What's new in Xounds
Addressed a problem when using the 32-bit side of the Xounds prefpane. Clang was incorrectly doing stuff to make the Objective-C runtime \"cranky\". sad face. Clang/LLVM is still FTW. happy winking face.
