Embed player (manual)

Manually embed audio via our Small Player or Medium Player.
We've launched the new BeyondWords Player in beta! Contact us at [email protected] for early access
This guide explains how to manually embed your BeyondWords audio. You will use an iFrame code, which can be inserted into any HTML document or container.
You can get the embed code for the Small Player or Medium Player, which are both customizable.
  1. 1.
    Go to the 'Content (Audios)' section of your project dashboard
  2. 2.
    Hover on the audio you would like to share
  3. 3.
    Select the '<>' icon ('Get embed code')
  4. 4.
    Select 'Small Player' or 'Medium Player', depending which you would like to embed
  5. 5.
    If you are happy with the preview, select the copy icon to copy the iFrame embed code
  6. 6.
    Paste the embed code into your HTML document or container, then save
The Small Player or Medium Player, featuring your chosen audio, should now appear on your page.
You can copy and paste the embed code anytime. However, the player will only render if the audio is processed and published.


What happens if I edit my audio?
The player will always stream the latest version of the audio (once fully processed). If you are still seeing the old version, you may need to clear your cache.
Will the player slow down my website?
Our players should not slow down your website. We’ve designed BeyondWords to minimize any effect on latency. The JavaScript player is lightweight and embedded via an iFrame, which means that it only loads after all other page content has loaded. We’re also the only text-to-speech service that transcodes audio for HLS (HTTP Live Streaming), which splits audio into 15-second segments at different bit rates to ensure frictionless listening.
