Did you find a solution. I am trying to do the same thing. Thanks
There may be better ways to do it, but you can reference the wav file in a container, then double-click it via script
GoToField [Container Field]
how to keep the media player out of the way or suppress the new window is a different issue...not sure how to go after that one. I've only ever used the scripted "Beep", and then not very often. I prefer quiet Dbases.
Hope this helps in some way...
Im pretty sure that filemaker will pause until the file / container contents has played through to the end..

I also prefer a quiet database :-)
