Learn how to customize the BeyondWords Player to fit your brand or use case
The BeyondWords Player comes with default UI styles that you can use out of the box and you can customize the colors, call-to-action, controls, and add an image to some styles.
The following styes are available:
standardthis is our primary player style, carefully crafted to suit article header placement (recommended).
smallthis is a smaller version of the standard style, perfect for a more subtle or space-constrained placement.
largethis is the largest style, perfect for showcasing podcasts or audio content as the main focus on a page.
The player can be set to either a light theme or a dark theme, and each theme has its own color settings.
For each theme you can customize the following properties:
Each property has a default color. However, you can set each property to any CSS color, including named colors, HEX, RGBA and even linear gradients.
You can customize the default "Listen to this article" call-to-action on the player according to your preferences.
Not available in the large player style.
You can choose whether listeners should be able to skip forwards and backwards between segments "paragraphs", or based on specific time intervals in seconds, or even tracks (for playlists).
autochoose this option to enable dynamic skipping by
segmentswhen the player is initialized with a single audio, or by
trackswhen initialized with a playlist (default).
segmentschoose this option to enable skipping backwards and forwards between paragraphs.
secondschoose this option to enable skipping backwards and forwards in seconds. The default value is set to 10 seconds.
To adjust the skip duration for
seconds, simply append the desired number of seconds. For example, use
seconds-15to skip 15 seconds backward and forward, or use
seconds-15-30to skip 15 seconds backward and 30 seconds forward.

The default image for the large player style is a square thumbnail of the content image. You can override this and upload your own image to appear on the player instead.
You can customize your audio experiences by uploading an audio intro and outro to play whenever someone starts or finishes listneing to an audio. This could be sonic branding, like a sound effect, or a message from the publisher.
