Is it possible to use base64 hack in sound automation?

Cupertino, December 18, 2021

I don't have an Apple Music subscription and I want to have an automation that plays sound on my HomePods. I played with the base64 hack to play a sound in the Shortcuts application, but this allows a Text variable, while it does not appear in the conversion to shortcuts in Home automation. Is there any way to pull the text for the alarm sound? Decoding exists, but I can't figure out how to enter text for the sound.
