Start /stop read aloud

    I'm using a button to start and stop Read Aloud. It works on the pubcoder preview, but not on the device or browser.
    Please help.

    Hello, what format are you exporting? EPUB? HTML? XPUB?

    I have the same issue. I have a button to start and stop reading aloud. I use the HTML5 to export and preview on the chrome browser.

    I have a character. Upon tap down, I enabled the start/stop reading aloud. It works fine for the page, but the next page the read-aloud continues, which I don't want unless it is triggered again by the reader by clicking the button.

  4. @Angelo - Please let me know your inputs.

    Hello Kumar, that's the way read aloud works as defined by the EPUB standard. It is a media overlay with a global on/off status for the entire book.
    Maybe you should use something different (e.g. play audio action and an action to highlight the character, like a run javascript or switchimage) for your use case.
