    Hello,

    I inserted audio in one of my Lectora title, and I chose a skin for audio player from within Lectora itself. When I view the published output on a PC, the player appears as it appeared in Lectora. However, if I view this content on an iPad, it is changed to a default audio controller of Safari browser of iPad. This leads to another issue that this default player does not have a feature of MUTE, as opposed to the one for PC has it.

    I believe ‘muting’ an audio/video is not possible with iPad, as quoted in the following PDF:

    http://developer.apple.com/library/safari/documentation/AudioVideo/Conceptual/Using_HTML5_Audio_Video/Using_HTML5_Audio_Video.pdf

    Has anyone found a workaround for this? I want to have the same UI/features for an audio player for PC and iPad. Common features like play/pause/mute/progress-bar/elapsed time/total time etc…

    iOS devices do not allow you to programmatically change volume or mute media in a HTML page. This is something that has always to be controlled via hardware buttons.

    I suggest you check out browser detection blog (http://lectora.com/blog/browser-detection-lectora/) and then show iPad users a little reminder along the lines of “this course has audio, use your iPad volume keys to regulate it”.

    Hope this helps.
