You can

  • Add Files by browsing for new audio files on your computer and then
  • Use File from the list of files added or
  • Delete File from the list of files added (to save space if you are not going to use audio), or
  • Cancel which will take you back to the image properties window.

When you have finished click OK and your audio and a player will be inserted into the question or answer option.
