Is there a reason why this would not work on mobile devices?

Thank you. Much as I found (after a bit of googling). Do you know if the click needs to be a specific one of the audio element, or could it be anything that then invokes the play() method?

I was recently able to reproduce this one on both in Moodle and Drupal, with following OS's / browsers:
Actually, these browsers are not playing audio at all - it is not depending if autoplay is on/off.Test audio is on Course Presentation slide.
On Mac/Chrome and Mac/Safari (newest versions) I can't reproduce this.

Just done some more testing, and it seems to be that this issue is related to .wav audiofiles only.Changed the audiofile into .mp3 file and it works fine with Firefox as well.
It would be nice if you can confirm if this is related to .wav only :-)

Thank you for the information. However I cannot reproduce the issue on my end, I'm using Mac with Firefox V 66.0.2 (64-bit). Do you have a sample content that we can check?

Sure - here's test content, created in h5p.org.
Here's my observations:

Thank you for the additional information. There is an existing bug report for the auto-play issue on the first slide and you can follow the progress here. For the other issue I've created a separate report here.

I was able to reproduce this in H5P.org, Drupal & Moodle, on these OS's / browsers:
It seems that these browsers doesn't play audio at all - it is not depending if autoplay is on/off.My test audio is on Course presentation slide. Tested on several workstations.
On Chrome (both OS's) and Edge, audio works fine.
Hopes this helps you to solve this issue.

We are also having the same issue. First slides of all modules do not auto play. However, it seemed to work when we started to build the content and the issue did not surface. Only after we built many modules we discovered the issue. I look forward to hear a resolve on this issue.
Anyone has any workarounds? It seems just adding a heading slide with no audio in the beginning seems to work.

I am not entirely sure if that's a problem with H5P or simply browsers becoming more strict when it comes to autoplaying audio.
