As of a year ago, I know we weren’t able to autostart audio on an Apple device. It was explained as a purposeful security feature by Apple attempting to prevent iPhone and iPad users from unknowingly downloading large audio and video files.
Have there been any new ideas, methods, or technologies introduced in the past year making this a possibility with Lectora published content? Thanks!
Thanks guys! It would have been great to pickup audio start as well, but we’ll take what we can get huh?! I support a number of video-based courses so auto start of that media type will be a nice feature addition.
On a separate note, the next version of Lectora will have a single-page publish option, which (almost) solves the auto-start problem. Users will have to click the “play” button only once per course, not once per page.
Ooohhh! Interesting! So with the single-page publish option, a course will essentially look like…for lack of a better word, a single page to the browser. Meaning that once the user interacts with the course by clicking play, that permission lasts the entire session? If so, that’s definitely something I could work with!
