ing events because they have proven to work when building audio applications:
Raised when the browser is retrieving data while loading the file. (This still has spotty
support in browsers, so be careful with it.)
Raised when the browser calculates that the media element could be played from begin-
ning to end if started immediately.
Set to true when the audio is being played.
Set when either the volume property or the muted property changes.
Set when playback reaches the duration of the audio file and the file stops being played.
