Help / Creating an online quiz with audio files

Adding sound to your online quiz, test, or assessment.

With FlexiQuiz, the online quiz maker, you can add audio to your test using an MP3 file. This could be music, film clips, sounds, or your own voice providing instruction and encouragement.

Audio is a great way to create an interactive quiz. For example:

  • Foreign language teachers can read a phrase for respondents to translate.
  • Play music during a pub quiz - respondents need to correctly answer for the song name, title, or artist.
  • Providing instruction and guidance for students who may have reading difficulties.

This guide shows you how to add an audio file to your FlexiQuiz.
