That's not true. Flash exports the font outlines when it creates the .swf

Actually, this will CAUSE the problem because this setting makes Flash use
the user's resident fonts rather than your original font outline information.

Sound takes up lots of file size. Try converting to 22kHz sampling rate,
maybe even 11kHz sampling rate, 16 bit (8 bit will probably sound awful,
but try that, too), and certainly make it mono. If Wave Studio does not
allow you to do these conversions, download a copy of CoolEdit shareware
for the PC (http://www.syntrillium.com) and you will find the function
under Edit>Convert Sample Type. Be sure to work with a copy of your sound,
not the original, unless you can easily recreate it :-)
