What is it with Adobe's hatred of sound? They keep coming out with apps that make it easier to assemble web sites yet ALWAYS exclude sound. There are a lot of creative projects I'd like to work on with Adobe but they require sound files. From a web site where you click and drag loops to mix the audio live, to a kid's virtual zoo where you click on an animal to hear the sound it makes, to a site made for visually-impared people who have to navigate by sound, to a site about how orchestras work where you can "conduct" based on how you move the mouse around the various instruments, and just basic music snippets visitors can click on to hear samples. But I can't do any of these because Adobe has this intense, all-consuming vitriolic hatred of audio. Every time they come out with a new web app they leave out everything to do with sound, and when I ask about this Adobe just stares at me in befuddled confusion as if I was insane for even thinking it was worth mentioning in the first place.
Why, Adobe? Why exclude sound from web apps? Why completely ignore ears as if they were never there? What is your problem with audio?

Yes please add, this will be a wonderful feature. Please add before other prototyping app does.
Jim Rand commented
Especially given the explosion in voice and audio. Small box for a big company!
Please add sound and video.
James Johnson commented
Please add sound!
This just needs to happen. period.
How come this hasnt arrived yet, we need to be able to insert mp3files and of course, when the HOVER for the buttons?!

Was loving the thought of using XD to prototype a new app until I found out it's not possible to include audio files! How ridiculous. Come on Adobe. If nothing else, think of the revenue - you're losing clients daily!!
voice narration, generation of mp3 files. I don't want voice commands, I want to present information as narration, whereby user taps image and hears the info. The AI voices exist, but I can't add them to my site because the system doesn't generate mp3 files.
Well, I was designing a musical ear training app and found, to my dismay, that I cannot add audio. What? Project halted.

Come on guys! 3 years and we still want this

This was a deal-breaker for a project. Had to switch to another tool. Must be fixed for XD to be the go-to prototyper.
【Translate to English】
I started using XD.
Make a prototype and make a very good move.
However, no matter how much you investigate, you can't find a way to run BGM or put SE.
And this page that arrived.
We would like you to introduce the function to play sound as soon as possible.
I'm making a prototype for the game, but the sound is as important as visual.

MP3 file support would be a great feature if added. It could create much more interactive prototypes when paired with MP4 files or on its own.

Same here: teams of students who try to integrate sound design in their prototypes ... Because it's 2019, and audio interaction is the key in our most innovative projects. Fix it, Adobe.
Terri Nakamura commented
I have been working on an app design and would like to use sound. It's too bad sound can't be added to XD. It's easy to do in Adobe Spark...
Sound interaction is he central point about real interaction.
Without sound interaction is called poor adns its usability limited
Audio features are absolutelly essential for any interaction software.
Xd may have no future without it.
audio is absolutelly essential. XD has no future without it.

I am a sound designer within a UX team. We work with XD but I need to record the prototype and add the sound in the video afterward. We miss a lot of the interaction breaking visuals and sounds apart. If you have speech playback, why not include audio feedback - a way for me to add my own audio files.

Yes! I have sound design background and putting sound effects in my prototype would be awesome!
