Flash! Stop Talking

I’ve noticed a new (annoying) trend lately. Talking ads and websites. I go to some site to check out the latest hardware news and I’m greeted by a screaming woman telling me I have “been selected to received a free Apple iPhone .” Everyone within twenty feet of my PC hears this crazy woman. I start fumbling with my volume control, eventually silencing the stupidity.

This company actually caters to making your site and ads talk: www.sitepal.com . No surprise that their site talks to you. All these talking ads, along with most ads nowadays, are Flash ads. I love Flash (Tower Defense games , anyone?), but Flash ads are Pure Evil.

Can I please get a setting to disable all sound from websites unless I turn it on?

I feel a headache coming on.

EDIT: Some more evil ads:
