|Audio Path (mp3)||
Enter the path of the mp3 audio uploaded in the file manager. You may also provide a full link to the mp3 audio.
When checked, the audio must play through the end in order for the respondent to continue to the next question. The button will not be clickable until the audio is over.
Tip: When forcing respondents to listen to the entire audio track, we recommend disabling seeking so respondents can't jump to the end of the audio track using the slider.
When checked, respondents can jump to different points in the audio with the slider.
|Allow Pause||When checked, the audio can be paused.
When unchecked, pausing is not available.
|Allow Replay||When checked, the respondent can replay the audio clip.
When unchecked, replaying is not available.
When checked, the audio clip will automatically play for the respondent.
Auto-Start only works for Desktop. Mobile users must press Play.
|Auto-Advance||When checked, the respondent is automatically advanced to the next page when the audio is finished playing.
When unchecked, the respondent will be required to click continue/finish to advance to the next page.
Once the question is setup you can preview the element at any time by clicking on "Preview" located at the top right corner of the element. To find out more about previewing an element, click here.
