If I put a slideshow in my story map, I currently don't see an option to add audio.  Am I missing something or is this option only available in sidecar block?  Any plans to allow audio in slideshows in future? My slideshow was to highlight different animal species and an audio clip of what each animal sounds like would be so cool!

Hi Cindy,

To answer your question, Audio can only currently be added in the body of the main story and in sidecar narrative panels. I'm unsure if this functionality is expected for an upcoming release, best practice now would be to add the audio using a sidecar for a similar format. If you're using a clip on a hosted audio service, you could also use the Embed tool to place the audio near the slideshow!

Thank you Abby!  I'm glad I wasn't missing it.  I do think it would be a cool option in slideshow as well.
