When to use audio

Audio is a very efficient way to deliver information. You can record voices and deliver podcasts on the web. Or you can offer sample music, if you are a musician. Be careful when using music on your website. Copyright in the music business is very complex. It’s up to you to verify the terms of use.

Do’s

  • Use audio when you want users to focus on the sound.
  • Use audio to offer comments or notes for a presentation and make the information on the page more comprehensive.
  • Use audio to demonstrate a piece of music.
  • Use audio to make things more personal.
  • Use audio to teach the pronunciation of words (foreign language).

Don’ts

  • Don’t use background music unless you are a musician or work with sound.
  • Don’t automatically launch audio on your website.
