Hi, Mel.

The audio plays automatically because it starts playing whenever it appears on the timeline.

Here's one way to do what you want:

  • Add a layer to the slide.
    • Put the audio on the layer. 
    • Set the Layer Properties to "Reset to initial state" when revisiting.
    • Add a trigger to the layer that hides the layer when its timeline ends.
    • If you the want the user to be able to temporarily pause and then restart the audio, add buttons for that on the layer. 
  • For your "Play Audio" button on the base, use a trigger that shows the layer with the audio. 
    • This will show the layer and, thus, start its timeline, which will play the audio.
