HTML <audio> style Attribute

The style attribute on an <audio> tag assigns a unique style to the audio player. A style contains one or more CSS property/value pairs that define the appearance of the player.

Example

#

A style attribute on an <audio> element.
The audio is styled with a border.

<audio style="border:10px solid lightsalmon;
              border-radius: 50px;"
       controls>
  <source src="/media/epic.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
  <source src="/media/epic.wav" type="audio/wav">
</audio>

Using style

The style attribute specifies the style, i.e. look and feel, of the <audio> element.

A style contains any number of CSS property/value pairs, separated by semicolons (;).

The style attribute overrides any other style that was defined in a <style> tag or an external CSS file.

This inline styling affects the current <audio> element only.


Syntax

<audio style="CSS-styles">

Values

<button onclick="toggle();">Toggle style</button>

<script>
  let toggle = () => {
    let element = document.getElementById("myaudio");

    if (element.style.borderStyle === "solid") {
       element.style.borderStyle = "dashed";
    } else {
       element.style.borderStyle = "solid";
    }
  }
</script>

Code explanation

The style attribute assigns a colored border to the <audio>.

Clicking the button calls JavaScript which changes the border style.
