Course presentation and audio button

Hi I see on any tutorial that a slide can have an embedded audio in it. But I can't find the button (image) has anything changed? If I can find and put an audio file in a slide of a Course presentation, can I play it automatically for all it's lenght before the user can go on the next slide?

Hi ilfungo!

I believe there may be a problem with your system. The audio button should be next to the anchor symbol. I assume the proper audio library is missing for some reason, but usually this can be fixed by downloading the demo content from this site and uploading it to your site.

No, you cannot force someone to listen to the audio before he/she can proceed to the next slide.


Thanks for your reply however the screenshoot is taken from . It's not a wordpress, moodle or whatever installation. The reason to "force" somebody to listen to the audio is the course must be followed completely. It's the same that happend with an interactive video, you force somebody to whatch and listen. I will go on with the video!
Thanks Federico

Hi Frederico!

I did not ask for a reason why you want to force someone to "attend" some lecture video or whatever. If you want to waste other peoples' time and follow bad practice IMHO, feel free to.



Hi Oliver and thanks for your answer. The reason to "force" somebody to listen to the audio is due to the need that the course must be completelly attended in order to get a certificate. It's the same that happend with an interactive video. Will go on with the video option.
thanks Federico

Hi Federico,

Audio is not enabled in and the only reason that Course Presentation is enabled is to test Interactive Book. To provide a best possible experience for new users and to ensure that people use only for trying out H5P (we've had more traffic than our server can handle lately, ref also the warnings when you create content, embed content and view the content) we are experimenting with which content types should be available here.

Check the getting started page for information on how you can use all the content types and use H5P for real. We unfortunately are not able to provide free hosting, only free software :)
