|What do I need in order to hear background MIDI music?|
Background music may be included on your greeting card in the form of a MIDI file. MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.
To play and listen to the MIDI files, you must have sound card in your computer that supports MIDI playback.
Most sound cards do support MIDI, as long as the proper software drivers are installed. You might also need
to configure your browser or raise the volume on your computer's speakers.
