Or can it? I dont see this at all in my sector and maybe there's a very good reason for that. Might even have an effect on your serps ranking if Google decides it doesnt like the intrusive nature of the output or has a problem with the code.
Just read that people retain 10% of info they read, 20% of info they hear or 50% if you can combine the two. Given that 99% of people presenting these stats usually make them up - who knows what to believe!
Id appreciate views from anyone who has experience of this perhaps in different sectors.

I firmly believe the visitor, and only the visitor, is in the best position to decide whether he/she should be subjected to an audio file.
All sites that force audio on me will lose me as fast as I can click the back button.
I am very much not alone in this view.
As for me, I don't appreciate being tag-teamed with solicitation efforts, however, if the files/text are specifically made for presentation / information and not because someone is trying to make their sale, that I find acceptable.
So don't tell me the car has plenty of power, but do feel free to tell me I can keep the pedal to the floor until the rpm needle pegs the redline governor, and would I like to take a test-drive so I can see what it feels like...
Now if the sound file only garbles back what I can read in the text, that is an insult to my intelligence. However, if the sound file is a recording of the engine at full throttle (which is something you can not emulate in print), then you might have my attention.
As far as whether or not I will remember it, if it is as good as it looks and sounds, I will RUN out and BUY it before I forget!
