You actually misuse the term theora as an emebedded audio playing solution,
it's a video codec, nothing more.

You have few options for Ogg playback :

- native <audio> for 50% browsers as already said (FF, Chrome, opera)

- Prompt IE users to install chrome frame ( IE6->9)  Or Prompt users to
install dshow Ogg codecs (experimental AX <audio> in IE )

- Prompt mac safari users to install QT Ogg codecs.

- Use Java with Cortado
