How can you play page and narration audio together?

There is a conflict that prevents using page audio (like background music) if you want to have an audio that reads a sentence out loud.

You have to set the reading audio to "stop all audio before playing" so that multiple clicks don't start multiple playbacks of it (it sounds like a crowd of clones). 

And when you use this setting, it kills the page audio.

I assume a solution of some kind won't come until Narration is restored.

Hi Sean,

One workaround for the time being would be to chain two action sets together: Tap-StopAudio (the narration) followed by (none)-PlayAudio (the same narration).

This works. But one small glitch - I started not being able to select the clip for "stop audio" action, even if I made a "play audio" first - which adds the clip to the app. This clip is omitted from the list of page audio clips. I workaround by adding two "play audio" actions, then changing the 1st one to a "stop".

This is on a PC.
Thank you for pointing this out! I was able to reproduce the problem, and I've let our lead developer know.
