The classic StoryMaps supports audio files, but I don't find this capability in the new Story Maps (although links to mp4 video files are supported).  Is there a way to associate an mp3 audio file as a link?

Hi Bill -- We're working on support for uploading audio files right now and plan to release it in June/July.

For now, you can already link to audio hosted using 3rd party services like SoundCloud (using the Embed option in the story builder). See this story as an example.

This was my question too, thanks so much for the answer Owen Evans‌!

Will audio be supported in the Sidecar and Guided tour section options as well?

Thanks!
