MS Edge Compatibility vs. Mobile Compatibility


In the middle of trial of our modules we incidentally discovered that HTML5 output does not work on new MS Edge. After a research around this topic, am I right that we have to chose either mobile compatibility (if users do not use Storyline Mobile player) or MS Edge compatibility? And what means Flash publishing - I do not see this option when I publish. Is it the format with HTML5 unchecked? I hope very much this issue gets fixed soon but we are launching very soon. Thanks a lot for your feedback!

Hi Tamara!

You are correct, only the Flash output is supported in Microsoft Edge as you can see here.

HTML5 content is supported on:

  • Windows: Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mac: Safari 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version)
  • Mobile: Safari in Apple iOS 7 and later, Google Chrome (latest version) in Android OS 4.1 and later

Hi Tamara!

The flash is included when you publish. If you wanted Flash only, yes you could uncheck the other options.

Articulate Storyline lets you publish courses for Flash, HTML5, and the Articulate Mobile Player app. To distribute your published content, upload it to your web server or LMS, then link to the story.html file in the published output. Here’s how Storyline determines which version of your content to display when learners view it.

You can view the content in Mobile Safari as I shared above.
