Thread: iPhone playback problems

Back to the Forum


Posted: 2018-09-15 18:45
Regardless of what length of time I set for the lessons the playback cuts off about 1 min in. When I submit my result you can see that thereís much more to be sent but it just stops. Iím using the safari browser on an iPhone. Anyone else have the same issue?

Just timed it, takes 1:16 until it cuts off mid character.

The same problem arose for me today (Sunday, 16 September, 18:00 UTC). Playback started to cut off at lesson 19.

One can hear a soft click when playback stops.

I am using Safari on an iPad.

Iíll try a different browser and report again shortly.

No luck. I tried Chrome and FireFox ó same problem. I also tried changing the CW settings (>wpm, eliminated pause at start), but that did not help.

Finally, I changed from HTML 5 audio to Flash and embedded audio. Still no change.

Iíll check my desktop computer later and report.

No problems or issues using Chrome on Windows 10.

Despite the (presumably) iOS problems, this site is so awesome it's hard to complain.

Yet the problem has been noted here, and hopefully will get some attention when possible.

Hi Patrick, thanks for replying to the thread. Yes everything you said and the problem solving approach you took was identical to mine. Iíd like to practice in my lunch break at work and this is stopping me Iím afraid.

Hi guys,

would those with access to an affected device please try if the same problems occur on these CW players? The file should play for about 2:05 min.


Thank you!

Hello Fabian, did my feedback help at all?

Kind regards

Posted: 2018-09-19 11:08
Yes, thank you! But I am still pondering on what to try next. Stay tuned :-)

Thanks Fabian, excellent support and much appreciated.

I have not tried using my iPhone recently, but also hope to be able to us it at lunch if the glitch has been fixed. Any progress?

Did you try embedded MP3 as play option?

Posted: 2018-12-22 05:57
I also have the same issues. I did try to embedded MP3 option as well as opening the MP3 link under the normal audio player. I still have the same issues. No issues from my computer on Win 10.

I believe this is a problem related to running the webpage in safari, and there isn't a current solution.

Posted: 2019-01-06 21:25
I'm getting the same in Safari on a Mac.

Posted: 2019-01-22 03:18
Today I tried a few more times. I am finding that if I hit play and then click on the lesson link again a few times and then finally play and run through the lesson it seems to work just fine.

Posted: 2019-10-09 18:26
Is there found any working solution?
Not that it bother me that much, I can figure out the 10% error myself. But it would be nice when the statistics/graphs give a correct data.

I'm on lesson 7/40 using Safari on a MacBook Pro. I have my sessions set for one minute but the audio cuts off before the last two sets of 5 characters are received. I tried logging out and back in and resetting my laptop but nothing works. hope it gets figured out.
