You need to delete the "*" after "_audio.aps" or it come up as Page Not Found.

That page "states" that MP3 seems the best audio type for cross-platform [browser] usage.

If your audio file is not in that format, there are free audio converters for Windows and should be one of two in Linux [but have not looked for Linux since I have one on my Win7 laptop].

This sample for that page with some other text from that page.
Having the audio controls is helpful for those who do not want to listen to the embeded audio.
The HTML <audio> Element

To play an audio file in HTML, use the <audio> element:
<audio controls>
  <source src="horse.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
  <source src="horse.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
Your browser does not support the audio element.

HTML Audio - How It Works

The controls attribute adds audio controls, like play, pause, and volume.

Text between the <audio> and </audio> tags will display in browsers that do not support the <audio> element.

Multiple <source> elements can link to different audio files. The browser will use the first recognized format.

Not tested, but should work.

The "not supported" issue is a HTML/Javascript based one. There is a specific HTML/Javascript tag/option that uses Audio files -- Embed, bgsound, and other specific tags/scripting.

You may have to edit the file in a "view source" option to add the needed script to embed a background sound or one with the needed audio controls.

You might want to look at places like these for more information about the audio scripting options. [ HTML 5 specific?]

Dear Sir or Ms.,

My name is Dennis Regan and I have enjoyed LibreOffice Writer very much but here is a problem that I have encountered that I hope you can help me with. I am attempting to insert an audio file into a document so that when I save that doc as an HTML document I would like the audio file to play while a reader is viewing the HTML document.

So far I have tried to insert all of the audio file formats that I can think of and all that I get when I try to insert them is that they ARE NOT SUPPORTED.


I thank you in advance for your assistance.

Very truly yours,

Dennis Regan
