A recent change in Safari auto-play functionality may impact how audio functions in some elearning courses, including the UCPath WBTs. Depending upon the version of Safari and the user’s browser settings, affected users may find that while the course auto-plays upon launch, no audio can be heard.

Quick fix:  Toggle the audio button in the playbar (off/on), then sound will play normally for the remainder of the course.
