Installing and Activating the Audio Addon for Envira Gallery
Before you can use it, you’ll need to install and activate the Audio Addon. The process is pretty simple, and it works the same way for adding all Envira Gallery addons.
First, log into your WordPress admin dashboard, then hover over the Envira Gallery plugin tab in the left-hand toolbar. You’ll see an option for Addons in the pop-out menu that appears. Select Addons, then find the Audio Addon in the list of Envira Gallery addons.
Next, click the slider button next to activate the addon. When you do, you’ll see the button and status text change to green.

How to Add Audio to Envira Galleries Using the Audio Addon
Adding audio tracks to new and existing Envira galleries is easy with the Audio Addon. We’ll show you how it works:
To add audio to an existing Envira gallery using the Audio Addon, find your gallery in the list of galleries under the Envira Gallery plugin, then click Edit.
On your gallery’s edit page, you’ll find all of the gallery configuration options. Locate the Audio tab from the left-hand side of the edit page, then select it.
You’ll now see your audio options for adding sound to your gallery. First, click the check box to enable audio for the gallery, then click Choose Audio File to select a file from your computer.
Once you’ve uploaded your audio file, you can also choose to enable autoplay for the audio or to play the audio on a loop.
