Does setting slide to "reset to initial state" solve HTML5 audio?

I realize that there is an Audio problem on slides that automatically advance in HTML5. that when you return to the slide, it doesn't play? Does changing the slide to "reset to initial state" solve that problem?

if not, is there any workaround? otherwise there is no need for me to publish to HTML5 with my current projects, since they need to advance automatically.

Hey Brian,

I'm able to have audio play automatically, however random slides/slide layers will lose audio.  But, if i reload the page and continue where i left off the audio plays.

If what you're stating is true then shouldn't all slides not have the audio play?

BTW, i can do the same w/ video and get the same results.

Hi Bill,

What browser are you using in which you're getting those results?

Hey, I'm having the same issue too! Some "auto advance" slides have audio (most actually), and then randomly, others don't. I was planning to troubleshoot this morning. I think the first thing I will do (based on all the posts I've read on the subject of audio/html5/iPad issues) is make the slides "user advance" that are having the "no audio playing" issue.

I'll let you know if that fixes it. (I'll also make sure there is nothing else "odd" on the slide causing it not to play.)

Hi Paul, 

Thanks for posting. In Tim's case above, we were able to publish his course to SCORM Cloud and view it in Safari with an iPad 2 with iOS 6.1 without any audio issues. If you haven't already, we'd recommend updating the iPad to iOS 6.1.

I'll check your other thread now, as it looks like you've attached a file. 

Thanks!
