Audio Player Block

This block allows content maintainers to embed audio content directly into their posts. This block is ideal for sharing a speech, a piece of music, or a conversation captured on a podcast. Not only does it allow for the upload of audio, this block also includes a custom header, title, teaser, and thumbnail along with the option to change the background color.

Note: in an effort to keep posts using the Audio block accessible, users will be prompted to provide a transcript to accompany the audio associated with the block. This is not mandatory in the case of audio that does not contain spoken words, but users must opt out by clicking the “Transcript not required” button (see example below).
