Author thinks that the sound should NOT be loaded when the page loads:
The preload attribute specifies if and how the author thinks that the audio file should be loaded when the page loads.
The preload attribute allows the author to provide a hint to the browser about what he/she thinks will lead to the best user experience. This attribute may be ignored in some instances.
Note: The preload attribute is ignored if autoplay is present.
The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the attribute.
The <audio> tag is new in HTML5.
