Problem Description
The audio object "play sound at object" does not work in IE11.

Attach a Capx
link to capx

Description of Capx
A listener object and a sound source are set at start of layout. The source object is moved across the screen so you can hear the stereo effect caused by its movement.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Run layout in Chrome
  • Run layout in IE11

Observed Result
In Chrome and Firefox the stereo effect works as expected - left/right sound effect and the volume of the sound reduces with distance. In IE11 there is no stereo sound effect and the audio is played at full volume (ie no reduction with listening distance).

Expected Result
Audio API should work consistently across all major browsers. If this is a long term bug in IE11 then I realize that there's probably nothing that can be done.... but I am not sure... Thanks.

Affected Browsers
  • Chrome: (NO)
  • FireFox: (NO)
  • Internet Explorer: (YES)

Operating System and Service Pack
W8.1 x64

Construct 2 Version ID

Closing as not a bug: IE11 does not support the Web Audio API which is necessary for positioned sounds, only basic HTML5 audio. You can test for availability of this feature using the "Advanced audio supported" condition of the Audio object.

The good news is Project Spartan (aka IE12) already supports Web Audio, so it should be available in Microsoft's next browser.
