audio and img does not seem to work in IE11 or Edge

Hi all,

I have found directions to use the <audio> tag like:
<audio src="sounds/testAudio.mp3" autoplay>
Your browser does not support the audio element.
and <img> tag like:
<img src="images/testImage.png" height="100" width="100" />
but for one reason or another neither the audio or image works in IE11 or Edge.
Both audio and image works in Firefox and Chrome, however.

It seems to not matter what story format I am in (Harlowe or Snowman exhibit the same issue).


  • I tested the following using both Harlowe and Snowman 2 in both Internet Explorer and Edge on Windows 10:
    note: If you leave off the audio element end tag the image element becomes a child of the audio element and will not be displayed.
    Test audio
    <audio src="sounds/testAudio.mp3" autoplay></audio>
    Test image
    <img src="images/testImage.png" height="100" width="100" />

    The Harlowe build worked correctly in both web-browsers, the Snowman 2 build worked correctly in Edge but resulted in a Internet Explorer restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls message in IE.
    Clicking on the Allow blocked content button resulted in a blank page and using the Inspect Element feature showed me that the body element contained no content, this leads me to believe that it is not your code that is causing the issue but the that Snowman 2 itself is having problems with Internet Explorer which I tested using a basic story example.
