speaker tones program

How can Javascript, or Java/Basic/VB/C/Python. program tones of several different pitches, durations and
preferably different volume levels from a Win 10 PC's external speakers ? The program can be specific
to my PC but I want control from the mouse/keyboard, not a preprogrammed sequence. Thanks.

So probably not javascript then, as javascript is a browser language designed to run in a HTTP:context not as a 'desktop' application.

forum205: C

Plus any of the M$ 'DOTNET' languages (VB.NET, C~, J# etc.

Public domain .wav files are very easy to find. I put tea-pot-whistle.wav in my current directory.


function PlayWave(waveElem) {
  var sound = document.getElementById(waveElem);
function StopWave(waveElem) {
  var sound = document.getElementById(waveElem);
<embed src="tea-pot-whistle.wav" autostart="false" width="0" height="0" id="waveFile" enablejavascript="true">

<button onclick="PlayWave('waveFile')">Play</button> <button onclick="StopWave('waveFile')">Stop</button>
