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.

This is a great tool that can be used for various reasons such as:

  • Foreign language teachers can read a phrase and ask the quiz taker to translate.

  • Providing instruction and guidance for students who may have reading difficulties.
