Your app has no sound how can I hear the word spoken in Swahili with no sound.
I was in the apple store and he could not get the sound to work on your app
Please advise me on how to get sound on your app
Thank you

It's usually because you have the mute switch on (on the side of the phone), or your ringer volume is set to zero. Check your ringer volume & your music volume (these are not the same thing), and that the phone is not set to mute
