When adding HTML <audio> element to a webpage, by default, the sound of the audio file is unmuted. This means if the audio file is autoplayed, it will automatically start to play with sounds on, and this could be annoying sometimes!

But we can add the `muted` attribute to HTML <audio> element and that sets the audio player to mute by default when the HTML document is loaded. So no sounds will be heard.
