Purpose

This template links to an audio file for quick listening. It is meant to be used inline with text, for pronunciations and the like. Please note that this just creates a link to the file and does not actually embed the file. If the file is Non-Free and only referenced via this template it is not in compliance with WP:NFCC#7.

Usage

Basic

{{Audio|name of sound file|text to use as link to soundfile|help=}}

Simple
'''Alabama''' ({{Audio|en-us-Alabama.ogg|/ˌæləˈbæmə/}}) is a state located in...
Alabama (About this sound /ˌæləˈbæmə/ ) is a state located in...
Variant
'''Alabama''' ({{Audio|en-us-Alabama.ogg|Pronunciation of "Alabama"}})
Alabama (About this sound Pronunciation of "Alabama" )
Help links

Setting |help=no disables the "help/info" links. If this is done the template {{inline audio}} must be shown on the page.

'''Alabama''' ({{Audio|en-us-Alabama.ogg|Pronunciation of "Alabama"|help=no}})
Alabama (About this sound Pronunciation of "Alabama")
Todo: add {{inline audio}} to this page.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hAudio microformat, which makes the recording's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a playlist or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{Start date}} (or {{Start date and age}} where appropriate) is used in a parent template or infobox (but do not use these if the date is before 1583 CE).

For the length or duration of a recording, say 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{Duration}} thus: {{Duration|m=3|s=45}}, which renders as 3:45. An optional h parameter can be used for hours.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.
