    It could be added in InDesign if that's the program that's generating the PDF. Or it can be added in Acrobat Pro using the Add Sound tool. Since you're tag says you're using Acrobat XI, that would be Tools > Interactive Objects > Add Sound.

    Select the Add Sound tool. On the page where you want to add the sound, drag a rectangle. Then you'll see this dialog:

    To make a media file play when the PDF is opened, click the "show advanced options" box and change the activation option. If you've already created the annotation right-click it and choose Properties to get to the same dialog.

    Anyone viewing the file will need Adobe Reader 9 or later, and if they have Adobe Reader XI they'll need to install the Flash Player extension manually. Opening it in something like OS X Preview, nothing will work.
