Presenter Audio Disappears and Reappears Once Loaded to LMS

Apr 17, 2021

We have been an Articulate user since 2015. We're using Presenter 360 to create courses and we embed the audio in the slides. Everything works fine when previewed. After publishing to SCORM for an LMS and launching the course, the audio frequently will not play when clicking on the NEXT button at the bottom of the slide. However, it plays when a slide is selected from the slide menu. Sometimes that won't work either but if you click on the next slide and then go back to the previous, the audio then plays. This hadn't happened prior to January 2021 but now it happens often. We have tried republishing and get the same result. Please advise.

Hello mick!

Sorry, you're running into this trouble! I don't see that we have an issue logged with Presenter 360 where the audio disappears and then reappears when the course is located in an LMS environment. Have you tested the link from the LMS in multiple browsers? Also, have you tried publishing the course for Web? If so, does the same audio issue occur?

If you'd like us to take a look at your project, you can attach the Articulate Package to this discussion or upload it to us privately in a support case.

Hi, Mick.

Thank you for providing the additional details!

Since it's working when you publish it for the web, but not when published to the LMS and tested in different browsers, it could be LMS specific, but let's try one more thing: 

SCORM Cloud is a free testing engine that helps troubleshoot LMS issues. I would be interested to see how your course's audio would behave there. Check out this step-by-step article!

If it works in SCORM Cloud, I would advise you to reach out to your LMS for additional troubleshooting. 

If you still see the same behavior in SCORM Cloud, my recommendation would be to open a support case here, as Lauren mentioned above, so we can take a closer look at your settings.

Let me know if this works!
