Audio Attribute Specification in HTML 5

The HTML5 audio tag can have a number of attributes to control the look and feel and various functionalities of the control:

autoplay This boolean attribute if specified, the audio will automatically begin to play back as soon as it can do so without stopping to finish loading the data.
autobuffer This boolean attribute if specified, the audio will automatically begin buffering even if it’s not set to automatically play.
controls If this attribute is present, it will allow the user to control audio playback, including volume, seeking, and pause/resume playback.
loop This boolean attribute if specified, will allow audio automatically seek back to the start after reaching at the end.
preload This attribute specifies that the audio will be loaded at page load, and ready to run. Ignored if autoplay is present.
