You can use HTML 5 audio via data URL's to generate sound and play it - 
although it's a bit of a pain doing it this way. There is work being 
done on working out an HTML audio generation API. See here for some 


If you generate the audio on the server and serve it as a WAV file then 
you can use HTML 5 audio to play it on recent Chrome, Safari, Opera and 
Firefox builds (I think all those support WAV).
