The DOM Audio seekable property is used for returning a TimeRanges object. The TimeRanges object is used for representing the ranges of the audio which are available for seeking by the user. The time-range of audio which is available for seeking i.e. moving playback position is called a seekable range. It is often possible to seek anywhere in the audio even before it has been buffered if its a non-streaming audio. The Audio seekable property is a read-only property. The time ranges object properties are:

  • length: It is used to get the number of seekable ranges in the audio.
  • start(index): It is used to get the position of a seekable range.
  • end(index): It is used to get the end position of a seekable range.
