Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

I am using AllWebMenus PRO v 5 on Windows XP that I just activated today.
The piano will display as shown here (http://kyemba.net/saylor), but my audio files will not sound.
I have tried testing the audio file using a standalone media player and the files play fine.
However, the files also will not play when substituted in the following w3schools.com ( http://www.w3schools.com/html5/tag_audio.asp )
editor as follows:
<type="audio/mp3" source src="http://kyemba.net/saylor/audio/02%20-%20Priere" />
Would you give me some advice on what I may be doing incorrectly. Or perhaps an alternative means to go about adding audio to a "clickable" event on the menu.

The purpose of the <audio> tag is to display a player within the browser which you can use to listen to the specific sound file you put in the “src”.
Adding sounds to the menu is something that our users have asked for years, but unfortunately this is still not possible given the current browser (lack of) support (it is only possible in Flash menus which is entirely out of our scope).
