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?
How come this hasnt arrived yet, we need to be able to insert mp3files and of course, when the HOVER for the buttons?!
Robert Parry commented
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
Samuel Mccown commented
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.
Jo Valvekens commented
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.
Gilly Moon commented
Yes! I have sound design background and putting sound effects in my prototype would be awesome!
Chris Thurrott commented
Adding audio playback would be very helpful - we have an application where we would play audio beeps under a speech prompt. Ability to use both together would be great, but just audio playback would be sufficient (we could record the speech and beeps together and play them back)
he would be great to have the possibility to add song.
To create complex hypermedia project for example.
It would increase the impact of ux design prototype.
we need to import mp3 and other sound formats into XD.
this feature will help us to design a powerful interaction, like open songs or some sound effects through the app.
Still waiting for that sound. Adobe? Anything?
