Built a Power BI variant of the animal "See 'n Say" toy for one of my young kids. Features a custom "visual" that plays the associated noise when you click on an animal.
Audio tested in Edge, FF, and Chrome. Hopefully works elsewhere.
Unfortunately only PBI Service will render sound using URLs for audio. Desktop shows the controls but will not play audio. Otherwise, I would submit to the Gallery for broader use.
Have you used “Scatter chart” for the sound visual? Which visual you are using for calling sound into Power BI report? Have you added links for each sound to your dataset?
Unfortunately this didn't use the HTML Viewer visual but a separate custom visual that's not up-to-date with the current API. You might be able to add X number of HTML Viewers and use visual level filters to get the options down to one per visual.
While the audio in this "report" was originally generated using a custom visual I built, you can attempt sound on your own without having to build your own custom visual. Now that we have the HTML Viewer custom visual, if I ever went back to recreate this content, I would use the HTML Viewer. https://dataveld.com/2017/12/24/adding-audio-or-video-to-a-power-bi-report/
