Sound effects on buttons

Asking for some feedback here more than anything.

For all "clickable" items in my presentations and quizzes, I provide audio feedback, a TickSound.  To me it elevates the experience making things feel just that little bit more alive.

But Storyline doesn't make it easy.  If I attach a "tick" to a next button or a button that opens a layer, that audio effect is cutoff even though it is short.

To get around that, I use the method:

1. Button triggers Playmedia:sound1
2. Jump to next slide when media:sound1 completes

This works.  I'm please with the result and have gotten fast at replicating this quickly.

 

What is your opinion on the audio feedback of clicked elements?  Worth it or no?
