Web Audio API
The Web Audio API is a relatively new specification that allows for more direct access to the
audio playing in the web browser than is possible with the <audio> tag. One day, this prom-
ises to completely alter the way audio is handled in the web browser. However, at the time
of this writing, the Web Audio API is only partially supported in webkit browsers (Chrome,
Chrome for Android, Safari (Mountain Lion), and Safari mobile (iOS)), and support was only
being planned for Firefox. Firefox has its own proprietary audio API named The Audio Data
API . Furthermore, Chrome was the only browser we could find that worked reliably. Still, it
looks like the Web Audio API will become a future standard, and that is why we are taking a
quick look at this emerging technology in this topic.
