<title>First title</title>
    <author>Unknown 1</author>
    <abstract>WAV File</abstract>

In the following example, the Abstract property is exposed by the event object.

function trackChange(){
    banner1.innerText = event.Banner;
    bannerabstract1.innerText = event.Abstract;
    bannermoreinfo1.innerText = event.MoreInfo;
