Audio control on React Native
Users should be able to control audio whenever it plays automatically. This includes being able to reduce the volume to zero. It's difficult to hear speech output of the screen reader users when other audio is playing at the same time.
In React Native apps you should always be able to control audio. A popular option for media is the
react-native-video package. You can use the
audioOnly property to play audio files. The
react-native-video package offers native controls for playing and pausing by default.
