How to embed audio element in a HTML document ?
  • Last Updated : 30 Sep, 2020

Since the release of HTML5, audio can be added to webpages using the <audio> tag. Previously audio could be only played on webpages using web plugins like Flash. The <audio> tag is an inline element which is used to embed sound files into a web page. It is a very useful tag if you want to add audio such as songs, interviews, etc on your webpage.

Syntax:

<audio>
    <source src="sample.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>

Example 1:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<body>
    <h1 style="color:green;">
        GeeksforGeeks
    </h1>
  
    <h3>

        <source src="test.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
        <source src="test.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
    </audio>
  
</body>
  
</html>
