Can the Audio Files play automatically?

Apr 11, 2018

If each lesson has an audio track, right now I am only seeing that they will have to click play to listen. I would prefer that it play automatically as it flows better with the content presented. 

Is this possible?

Hi Faye, 

We have shied away from auto-start of media because it's not a web-standard experience on multi-device. For example, if you were on a site on your phone and all of sudden it started playing audio or video it would be a pretty intrusive experience.  Also, most phone browsers actually prevent auto-play of media. It needs to be user-initiated. 

If this changes, we'll definitely keep folks posted!
