I have huge problems with sounds on ios (all devices, all versions) which is our main target as a platform. I have had too much issues with cocoon so that is not an option.
My issues are:
* Not all sounds are playing, only some, but this seems to be somewhat random
* When the page is reloaded, and the files are probably cached, no sounds are working
Unfortunately there seems to be little to no help here and I'm soon at my deadline so I will have an unsatisfied customer. I won't blame anybody and I understand that the problem is complex, but since ios is such a popular os, I would hope for more discussions on how to find workarounds rather than just hints to contact apple and get them to fix safari. It's like talking to a brick wall.
I am constantly looking at options and my team has spent a few weeks only to try to solve this specific issue with no luck.
One thing is for sure, if this is not solved, I won't get more jobs using this technique and I will have to switch to something that works.
I will try to summarize our research when I have the time and maybe we can work something out together.
