Internal Audible alarm configuration in 800xA 5.1 RevA
Internal audible alarm is configured in 800xA 5.1 Rev A as per Configuration manual in workplace structure for concerned workplace, Library structure and mp3 file of PPA is also played and tested. While after Generating alarm sound is not playing where as Speaker of the Windows system is working, tested in Operator workplace.

To configure audible alarm, you need to configure one audible alarm sound configuration aspect, in workplace structure for operator worplace you want.
and you need to confgure, audible alarm workplace configuration, selecting one alarm list, that, only the alarms in this list can work as audible alarm.
but also you need to configure the alarms in controller, and check the priority for alarm, you see in the list that there is 32 priorities, and one sound for each, yo so have to configure the priority in control builder according with sound that you have in the list.
you also need to review your priority mapping in library structure, for relation between alrms in control builder and priority in 800xa..
as you see alarms in control builder goes from severiy 0 to 1000 and priorities goes form 1 to 32, so in this case for example priority 1 in control builder you need to configure the alarm with severiy 800.
Thanks a lot for the answer. I was briefly explained earlier "as per configuration manual".
Here I am explaining in detail what I did before itself. I followed the manual "3BDS011222-510_A_en_System_800xA_5.1_Configuration.pdf" page no.86 onwards and it is same as the procedure what is explained by you except a small change as "Audible Alarm Sound Configuration" aspect instead of from workplace structure it was configured as per manual in "Library Structure" expanding "Alarm&Event" object we can find the object called "Audible Alarm Configuration".
At present I am testing this Sound with IEC61850 alarm generation which is appearing in the alarm list of 800xA which is selected for this configuration since at present due to site scenario hardwire signal alarm can not be generated.
You can find the 3 screen shots of priority mapping, workplace configuration, sound configuration here what are configured in below same as what was explained :
I have simulated Priotity 1 alarm appeared in the list and configured the same for audible alarm. (from PPA folder alarm.mp3 file under Program Files)

If I am right, you mean to configure "Audible Alarm Sound Configuration" aspect in concerned workplace object of workplace structure instead of Library structure level let me try but where as I have only 4 priorities of alarms so will check for these.
For better accuracy will try for hardwire signals soon and will revert.
