After adding it to a page, click anywhere in the element to open up the Audio Toolbar.  Then click Upload Audio to select an Audio file to upload and use the Track Title / Artist fields add a Track Title and Artist to the player.  

Keep in mind that the audio player currently only accepts audio files that are specifically in MP3 format.  If your audio is in another format, you'll need to convert it or else it won't work.  Go here to see how to convert an audio file to MP3 using iTunes

The audio file may take a few minutes to upload.  Once the upload is complete, the player will expand to display the title of the audio and basic playback controls.  You should now be able to play the file without any problems. The player only uses HTML and will work perfectly on all computers, iPads, iPhones, Android phones, and other mobile devices. 

Use the Advanced option to turn Auto Play On / Off (this is set No / Off by default) - if you turn Auto Play on then the audio will being to play as soon as the visitor opens the page. You can also select between a Dark or Light color scheme for the player.
