Need some help/advice.

Ive got this project Ive wanted to do for a while and my research has brought me here. I have no experience with microcontrollers but I want to make something that when I press a button a sound file is played. Possibly multiple buttons play different sound files. It also needs to be portable. Something like you would find in a talking doll. I’m not sure where to start or if this is even the right place. Hopefully someone can help me or give me some advice. :-/ Thanks!
