No Audio / Sound on the Website - Can't Hear Words


Note that not all courses have audio, while some community created courses may have missing or faulty audio. Here is how to check:

The first example (see below) has audio as there are speaker icons above the word.
The second example has no speaker icon, so there is no audio available.

If there is missing/faulty audio in a community-created course, you can contact the creator by leaving a message in the course forum on the website. It is up to the creator to fix these issues, and your input will surely help improve the course.
