Audio books- No Sound

Authors list


I have two audio books downloaded and there is no voice. Sent from my iPad


The iPad has an interesting mute quirk, which can result in no sound coming from certain apps over your iPad speaker, even though volume is turned up and you can hear the sound with headphones. This Soft Mute “feature” mutes app music and sounds.

In order to fix this, you need to follow the instructions below

  1. Double tap the home button
  2. Swipe from left to right
  3. Tap the speaker icon to the far left
  4. It should show “Mute Off” below the play button

Listen to app sound once again
This should fix your selectively silent iPad.

 6.1.3 iOS


When you double tap the home button and swipe to the right at the bottom of the screen - do you see the round button on the volume slider next to the Music Icon

Alternate: Go to Settings and change the function of the Side Switch from "Lock Rotation" to "Mute", then toggle the side switch. This should fix most common bug with the lock rotation switch.

If the problem still exists, Please re-start the iPad and access the app.

If you still face any issues, please let us know the  title you are facing the issue with. This will help us to resolve the issue.
