  • Link within PDF to networked Audio file - PDF Audio Player plays file

    I'm not new to PDF software or Foxit, but am fairly new to using more advanced features. This is also my first post on this forum.

    I create Training courses for government folks. What I'd like to do is imbed a link to an external audio file (mp3) and have the users native PDF viewer audio player play the audio file. I know I can imbed audio files into the PDF but I want to avoid this (manual becomes large, no ability to edit or restrict audio following manual download...). I want to link to the audio file located on my server. When i try to do this, Foxit treats the file like a downloadable file and downloads the .mp3 file my computer. What I want however, is for the native viewers' Audio player to play the file.

    Any assistance is appreciated,
