How to Skip the Tap / Click here splash screen

Want to skip or turn off here is a simple way to do that.

At the title level, you will want to add an HTML Extension with the type of Bottom File scripting.
Edit the object and this following code to the editor. Or simply add the attached AWO to the title level.

<script>
enableAutoStart = function (cb){ cb(); }
</script>

    Do you have a solution for Firefox as well? I added the HTML extension and still have the tap screen in Firefox.

    Thanks for your help!

    It just is not possible to skip the "tap to play" screen any more, on modern devices.

    The code at the top of this page worked for my situation - iOS 13.3.1 / Safari (THANK YOU SO MUCH! was driving me bonkers :) )

    Hello, I have tried to download the file and add it into my project as well as adding the script to the HTML extension but it still shows the "Click / Tap click here" splash screen.  Can someone who has fixed this issue please post a screenshot of how they set it up? Where does it go? I would greatly appreciate it as I have tried every single way. It did not have this on previous versions. I am using Lectora 19.0.1 and opening the training module with Google Chrome.

    Try changing the script to this:
    
    
    <script>
    getDisplayWindow().enableAutoStart = function (cb){ cb(); }
    </script>
    
    
    Or you can just uncheck the Auto Start checkbox on all your media. If you want Auto Start then leave in the Tap / Click splash screen. You can also adjust the wording in the Publish String (File Tab -> Preferences)

    If you want to only remove the tap/click for desktop and leave it enabled for mobile view you can use the following script which checks for a mobile device (and again inserted as an HTML Extension set to Bottom of file scripting):
    <script>
    if (!theApp.is.mobile)
        getDisplayWindow().enableAutoStart = function (cb){ cb(); }
    </script>
