Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The msAudioDeviceType property of the HTML <audio> element, is a read/write proprietary attribute, specific to Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

msAudioDeviceType specifies the output device id that the audio will be sent to.

Syntax

<audio src="sound.mp3" msAudioDeviceType="Communications" />

By default, audio on your system will output to your default speakers and be considered a foreground element, meaning that the audio will play only when the element is active in the app. For real-time communications, you can use the msAudioDeviceType property with the value Console, Multimedia, or Communications to specify where the current audio should output.

 

Value

Include a description of the property's value, including data type and what it represents.

Value Description
Console Specifies that the audio output will be sent to the console device.
Multimedia Specifies that the audio output will be sent to the multimedia device.
Communications Specifies that the audio output will be sent to the communications device.
