Articulate Presenter files published in our LMS prior to 2021 have audio playback issues
Feb 28, 2023
We are finding that Articulate Presenter presentations published at least 2 years ago are having this issue:
When automatically moving to the next slide, the audio on the next slide sometimes fails to play. The seek bar moves, but there is no audio. If you click "Prev" and then "Next" the audio plays on the slide that wasn't playing before.
Here is an example:
If you click play, and then wait for the presentation to reach slide 3, no audio will play. If you click the Prev button, or pause the slide and unpause, the audio will play. This happens on what seems like random slides throughout the presentation.
In the latest version of that presentation that I published yesterday, the problem has been remedied:
However, this makes me worry that I now have to go back and republish all of our Presenter modules to avoid this. I imagine this issue is related to the way Chromium has changed the rules of what audio is allowed to auto-play in the browser. Anyone else seeing this issue?
