Could you provide the version of Omeka and The Daily you’re using? Also, can you describe where on the page you’d like the html5 audio players to appear (i.e. the media viewer at the top, embedded within the metadata)?
That seems a great solution. We’re preparing some updates to how that media viewer works. It’s certainly possible to display the audio player within that media viewer, though it might be easier to wait for the next Omeka and theme releases than implement the temporary fix. That update will include PDF display as well.
Kim–thank you for the update! If you have any suggestions for presenting PDFs in the meantime (beside just a text link) I’d love to hear it. Right now I’m leaning toward something similar–identifying an image (probably just the Adobe PDF logo), creating a dedicated field, adding the image and using it as link to a file.
