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

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

Microformat

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hAudio microformat that makes an audio recording's details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
Subtemplates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{start date}} (or, where appropriate, {{start date and age}}) is used in a parent infobox/template. Do not, however, use {{start date}} or {{start date and age}} if a date before 1583 CE is involved.

Use {{duration}} to specify the duration/length of a recording. For instance, if the recording's duration is 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{duration|m=3|s=45}} (which appears as: 3:45). If needed, |h= may be included to specify a number of hours.

Please do not remove instances of these subtemplates.
