A friend said he can not hear sounds on WEB pages when using IE. He says he needs a plug in. I thought hearing
sounds on WEB pages was a normal part of IE.

Also is JAVA SCRIPT needed or used in IE? I thought that was for FireFox and IE used ActiveX.

A plug-in may have been requested because JavaScript may have been turned off. I get that a lot because I control whether ANY JavaScript runs on any web page. Go to Internet Options and turn on JS.


Just in case, to turn on java script:

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x (Windows)

1. Select Internet Options from the Tools menu.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. Click Custom Level in Security Level for this Zone.
4. Scroll down to Scripting, near the bottom of the list.
5. Under Active Scripting, choose Enable.
6. Click OK to leave Security Settings. Click OK to leave Internet Options.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x (Macintosh)

1. Choose Preferences under the Edit menu.
2. Click Web Content under Web Browser.
3. In Active Content, check the box next to Enable scripting.
4. In Java, click Enable Java. Click OK.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x (Windows)

1. Select Internet Options from the View menu.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. Set the security level for this zone to Custom (for expert users).
4. Click the Settings button (to the right of Custom).
5. Scroll to the bottom of the list and enable Active scripting.
6. Click the OK button to close the Security Settings window. Click OK to close the Internet Options window.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x (Macintosh)

1. Click the Preferences icon in the Toolbar.
2. Click the Web Content icon under Web Browser.
3. In Active Content, check the box next to Enable scripting. Click the OK button.

Thank you Major Payne.
Is it possible that JS was/is not installed on the computer?

JavaScript is a scripting language that browsers know how to run. Java is a program that has to be installed and updated from time to time.
