Yes, you can play a sound by specifying the sound file's URL
as a hyperlink destination, for example,
(click here to try it).
When the user clicks the hyperlink,
the browser will open a separate sound control window.
The user will then have to close this window manually.
What's worse, every time the user clicks the hyperlink,
the browser will open a new sound control window -
even though there might be several other audio windows already playing the same file!
