Putting an audio file into a Yes/No-Question?

    Asked on March 06, 2018 at 01:52 PM


    I would like to add audio files to my yes/no questions, since it is meant for people who might have problems with reading, so that the question would be read out loud for them. For this purpose obviously the question form and the audio file would have to appear at the same time. So my questions are: Would it in the best case be possible to upload single audio files to the single questions as done here: 


    Or would it at least be possible to let appear the YES/NO-question-form and a soundcloud-form at the same time? In the best case whilst the soundcloud- form is hidden?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible, to add audio tags (or any tags to radio/checkbox field). 

    You could try adding Text field to your form and then add an audio tag:


    Here is the audio tag that you should add:

    <audio src="LINK" controls="controls"></audio>

    Just replace the LINK with a link to your audio file.

    Then you could conditionally show that field.

    Please let us know if that could work for you.

    Thank you!

    Hi and thanks for the answer! 

    Since I'm using the single page for each question form I would like to let the audio file run while the question appears. Is it possible to let a Text field appear (or let appear hidden) at the same time with the yes/no-question? Or could I even somehow put this audio link in the "description field" of my yes/no-question?

    You need to put your text field before your yes/no question so that your audio will load first then set it to hidden.

    Here is my sample form.

    I have embedded a sound cloud iframe in a text field to play my audio.

    Here is the link to my form.https://form.jotform.com/80716491390964

    Let us know how it goes.
