Audio won't sync for iPhone/iPad

I have created the word list on my PC using Anki, added pictures and sound files from forvo for all cards, yet when I sync them, the audio files do not play on ANY device including my PC. I have all the images and mp3 files saved in the same folder that I keep on my desktop, is this causing the issue??? the card works fine apart from the audio! please help as I am desperate to get started on this!! :-(

  • This is how my individual card looks, as you can see it has the audio file in the correct field, yet on neither my desktop or ipad/iphone does the sound play! It is driving me mad as I cannot see why it is not working!

    My individual card on the Pronunciation part of the card (I used model deck) looks like this for example [sound:pray.mp3]

    And when i click on 'Cards...' button, the field where i want the recording looks like this


    If i paste a specific sound extension into this field, it plays! but then that word will be the word for all 625 of them! I am so fed up of this and do not know what I am doing wrong, please somebody help me!

  • The fields you are showing are from the templates used for all cards. I made cards for French from the model deck and they work on my desktop and iPad. I can't see your actual card but will give you an example of one of mine. Here is what is in each field:


    (image of a chair)

    Gender, Personal Connection, Extra Info (Back side):
    une chaise

    Pronunciation (Recording and/or IPA):

    Test Spelling? (y = yes, blank = no):
    (left blank)

    Does this help? If not maybe we can communicate by email. I don't know a lot but my cards do work.
