In an online flash project, I need a way to inform users that they need to make sure that their system audio is on and/or that its volume is up.
I am thinking about using a speaker icon, but since the user needs to check their system audio, which is outside of the flash module, this element will not be clickable. Does anyone have an idea how to prevent the user from trying to click the element within flash module?
Now, there isn't going to be much space for it, as it will be horizontally about 200px wide and 50px high, so presenting the system tray volume slider which is vertical on both Windows and OSX won't work for me.
I am also considering placing the following text on the pre-loader, but I'm afraid that it may go unnoticed:
"For the best experience, please make sure that your system audio is on and/or that its volume is up."
