Automatic speech playback not working?

I can't get the french to automatically play when I go from question to question (I have to press the 'sound' button every time). Is there something I can change in the settings to fix this?

sorry no there isn't anything you can do to prevent this. it used to happen to me all the time and it drove me mad but it eventually stopped

Uninstall and reinstall the app on your smartphone.

On PC, use CTRL+F5 to reload the browser cache.

CMD+F5 instead of CTRL+F5.

...well, that just turns on 'voiceover'. Is that what you mean? That's not what I'm talking about - I mean when you are going through timed practice, how do you get the french to be spoken automatically when you go to the next exercise... (without pressing the sound button every time...)
