THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

The Web Audio API is extensive, but most demos or tutorials cover examples that use it for fun or for niche areas specific to musicians or audio experts. Rarely is Web Audio shown doing something useful for typical application developers.

If you look at desktop applications or mobile apps, there is a long history of providing you audio feedback for things like interactions, notifications and errors. However, for the most part, web applications remain entirely silent, relying entirely on visual feedback that can often be easily overlooked.

In this session, I plan to introduce basic concepts of the Web Audio API and explore ideas about how they can be integrated into web application for practical audio feedback that is useful to users, but not annoying.
