A client (who is not in the music business - dentist) wants me to put background music on his website.
Even this is kind of a duplicate of Music on a web page? i would like to assemble a list of actual arguments to use with these kind of clients:
Discretion: While surfing in a quite enviroment (office) you dont want attention drawn to you by making noise
Taste: Someone might dislike the style of the music played
Accessibility: A deaf person is discriminated
Accessibility: Someone might not have a speaker connected
Resources: Additional Data must be downloaded and slows down the site
Distraction: The music might distract from the content
Cost: You have to license the music
Unexpected: Someone might have turned their speaker to maximum.
Incoherence: There is no connection to music on the site.
Force: You might force something on a user that was not expected or maybe wanted.
Are there more reasons?
