The Audio duration property is used for returning the length of an audio. The Audio duration property returns the value in seconds. Different browsers return different precision values such as with safari returning up to 14 decimal places followed by opera returning up to 9 decimal places. The Audio duration property is a read-only property. The Audio duration function returns “NaN” if no video is set whereas if the audio is streamed and has no predefined length, it returns “Inf” (Infinity).
