No sound and notifications not consistent

I was really looking forward to a plugin like this one, but at the moment it’s not ready to be used in any live site. Notifications are not consistent, I get one out of five or ten sometimes, having tried in all major browsers. About the sound alert, it never worked. This is the error it produces from the browser’s console:

jquery-migrate.min.js?ver=1.4.1:2 JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 1.4.1
eonet_live_notifications.js:55 Uncaught TypeError: self.sound.play is not a function

fontawesome-webfont.ttf Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()

If it works in future versions I’ll be very happy to change the review immediately and give it 5 stars, as I find it very useful in any buddypress site.
