Audio

Watch a video on audio playback or follow the instructions below.

The audio player displays the title along with an embedded thumbnail image. If there isn't an embedded image in your audio file, that element simply won't be displayed.

On a personal computer, if you hover over a playing audio file, a progress bar will appear at the bottom. This is where you can navigate within the audio file and change settings.

The audio progress bar shows where you are in playback. You can click anywhere on the bar to navigate to that point in the audio file. This makes "fast forwarding" and "rewinding" simple.

To the left of the audio progress bar is the volume slider. You can drag it up and down to adjust volume, or use your keyboard or mobile device volume buttons.

If there are closed captions or a transcript attached to the audio you are listening to, you'll see a CC button to the right of the audio progress bar. If you click on the CC button, you'll be able to select the caption file you want to display.

If you click the small arrow next to a given caption file, you'll have the option of downloading the caption file or the transcript to your device.

To the left of the CC button is the caption search button, a magnifying glass icon. Click it to search the caption file. Your results will be displayed, showing the caption line and timestamp. Click to navigate to that part of the audio file.

To the right of the CC button, the "Speed" button allows you to choose audio playback speed. Select from .25x, .5x, .75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x speeds.
