Audio Placeholder?

I am trying to make a student choice board where an option will be for students to verbally explain what they learned. I would like to make a placeholder that students can click and it opens a recorder for them.

I swear I've seen it done but I cannot find how to do it. I can only see the media placeholder or text placeholder option. I have tried to do this in numbers, keynote, and pages.

I love this idea, I have two ideas.

In Keynote, Pages, and Numbers you can place a make a short silent recording and place it where you want it. When students tap the icon for the recording they could then tap edit from the pop up menu. The recording will open and they can start recording over the original.

What I have done instead of using the above approach is to create a circle icon with the speaker icon on it and place it where you want the recording. This indicates to the students that they should go to the + and select record audio. After you show this approach they will understand what is needed to be done. I just used this idea with Kindergarten students this past week and did handled it great.
