Hi there,

if you like to create any kind of HTML5 audio web application, I recommend you first read this article: http://html5doctor.com/html5-audio-the-state-of-play/ which helped me a lot in understanding how to work with the audio element.

Mozilla's documentation is also pretty extensive if you need to find out all about the javascript methods available: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Using_HTML5_audio_and_video
