Audio Story for Images

Very simple, unique and exciting plugin that allows the bloggers to link an image to an audio file through the Media Library. Automatically, a little play icon will be added on your images in your posts. That way, you can give another dimension to your images thanks to sounds, music or voice-over. Here is a very simple example.

How it works

Simply attach an image to an audio file or vice-versa in the Media Library.

Audio Story Tutorial


Since I love the concept, I am trying to gathers ideas of what you can do with this plugin.

  • Tell an audio story behind each image rather than text (the text should focus on SEO instead, be an excerpt of the story)
  • Use cinemagraphs instead of normal images  and have the audio track synchronized with it
  • Write a post with photos taken around your home, with the associated background audio
  • Write a post with portraits, each of them will say a simple sentence with their own voice
  • Etc…
  • Excellent functionality 👍

    I like it, is there a way to move the icon to the bottom of the photo? Perhaps make it bigger?

    I installed the plugin and attached it to two images…the icon does not show. I used mp3 files…is that why? Do they have to be wav files?

      Hi Dave,

      what browser did you use? I’m on a mac and even on this page I didn’t get the icon with safari. With firefox it works.

      On my homepage logged in as admin I get runtime errors with safari.

      Hope this could help you a bit.

I recommend you to use WPEngine or SiteGround. They are both excellent hosting services and work perfectly with all my plugins.
