Hey folks, came here when I noticed that it was absolutely required for users to click on the webpage before the music could be played.
I get the concern around ads playing audio and being as such annoying. However that complicates my project where the user isn’t really expected to click on anything.
I suppose I could add a “click here to begin” button that literally does nothing but start the audio. But it would be required every. single. time. the user views a page. I don’t quite understand the hypersensitivity for the ads sound when sounds/music playing on something like a landing page isn’t at all uncommon.
I’m open to suggestions on this, I just hate thinking of requiring a click in order to start the audio. How about scrolling? Or would I have to hack a “click” solution in order to trick this? Honestly not trying to do anything bad, just want to give my viewers good UX.
