I am a non-programmer, building an educational app with a simple design. The main functionality is playing a series of short audios, with accompanying images and text. Each page of the app consists of a short audio along with an image and some text. My audios are stored on a website (external URL).
Using “Open audio player”:
The flow function “Open audio player” works well. However, it displays a black screen during the playback. Is there a way of embedding the audio player on a page? I want to display the image and text while the audio is playing.
Using “Play audio”:
I tried using the “Play audio” flow function, which allows me to retain the page display while the audio is playing. However, the lack of the audio player controls makes this option unappealing. First, I can’t figure out how to add the functions for pausing and resuming the audio. Second, if you tap the Play button while the audio is playing, it starts playing a second time, without stopping the first playback. Finally, the missing audio player means we don’t see the length of the audio, which is important for users.
