Audio in My Level sometimes does not play

I tried Chrome and Firefox but in the both browsers audio sometimes does not play at all or sometimes in take a second or two (I know the delayed play is not a big deal bust still it is annoying). Am I the only one with these issues?

Another annoying thing is that the assessment buttons (e.g. It's Easy) need to be pressed several times

Sometimes, I've found that the audio link itself is broken; there are special characters in the link like spaces (instead of underscore), ampersands [&] or emdashes (instead of dash) which prevent the file from playing. You can check to see if the link is in the proper UTF-8 (unicode) format by hovering over the play button (they're mp3 files). I've been reporting these broken links to RL support as I've come across them. Do you have one off-hand that can be checked?

I have not been using Rocket French online for long but I have come across too many issues with audio to report them individually. I encounter those issues mentioned above almost everyday and it becomes quite annoying.

Now I am in section 2.4 Traveling on Business - My Level For example the clip "Oh yes?" does not play. Also: I've got to get to the church; A business trip; I’m traveling in France; Well done !; And you?; And other, this is unusable:-(

Weird, they're all playing fine for me. Out of curiosity, what browser are you using? I'm using Firefox (v22.1) and tried on both a PC (Windows 7) and mac (OS 10.8 ) and I've found that it's the most compatible with the Java integration that's needed for the audio recording.
