I've uploaded audio via the audio block. Trying to figure out how to set it to autoplay upon page load.

Here is my website https://bellhop-final.squarespace.com/

At the moment, the audio block controls are positioned at the bottom left on hero section.

 

thank you

 

Can you show me the screenshot of where this audio is located on your page?

The music is beautiful BUT it's an accessibility nightmare. People who use screen reader and have to listen to the site to navigate will have difficulty and most will just leave the site. I personally have an auditory processing disorder and never know what sounds will send me into a fight or flight mode. I rarely stay on a website that either auto plays audio or video. (I have other medical issues that relate to video including triggering seizures).

Just something to think about.
