I’m working on the PR writing course, but the audio seems to cut in and out. How do I fix this?

The player will advance only when it is visible on your screen. If you started the lesson and navigated to another browser tab or application, then you can expect the audio for the current slide to finish and the player will pause until you return to the lesson window. It should pick up automatically. If not, click the ‘Next’ button to resume. Please note that the best browser to use with the course is Google Chrome, as long as it’s updated and has the latest version of Adobe Flash. You can also try refreshing your browser window and/or clearing your browser cache. If you have further trouble, please contact us at [email protected].
