What Browsers Does Learnosity Support?

A list of all the web browsers and operating system platforms supported and regularly tested by Learnosity.

Supported Platforms 

The Learnosity APIs are largely a collection of powerful, front-end JavaScript & HTML5 APIs designed to deliver a whole user interface and user experience to your end-user. The tables below provide some information on browser support in general, and for audio & video recording in particular.

See our end of support notice for Internet Explorer at the bottom of this page.

Firefox latest stable and ESR X [✓] [✓]
Safari 11, 12

Notes

  • Audio recording functionality is provided via WebRTC, which in turn requires the page be loaded over HTTPS.
  • Web Views on iOS currently do not support WebRTC, so audio Questions are not available when loaded under an iOS Web View.
  • Notice: Flash support is expiring (see our Flash end of support message).

 

Video recording (premium bundle) 

Browser Windows macOS iOS Android Chrome OS
Chrome latest stable   [✓]
Firefox latest stable and ESR     [✓] [✓] [✓]
Safari 11, 12 X
Edge latest stable [✓] [✓] [✓] X [✓]

 

Spellcheck and text correction 

Browser Windows macOS iOS Android Chrome OS
Chrome latest stable   X
Firefox latest stable and ESR     [✓] X [✓]
Safari 11, 12 X
Edge latest stable X [✓] [✓] X [✓]
  • In some questions types, there is the option to enable or disable spellcheck and text correction, which controls browser spellcheck, auto-complete, auto-correct and auto-capitalize on response fields.
  • iOS provides a method to disable auto-complete so that text suggestions are not displayed to or corrected for the user as they type.
  • Predictive text keyboards may still display text suggestions even if browser spellcheck, auto-complete, auto-correct and auto-capitalize are disabled for a text input field. This is common on Android devices which are considered to be unsupported.

 

Internet Explorer - end of support notice

As of July 22nd 2020, Learnosity will limit support for Internet Explorer 11 and Safari 10 to critical issues found only in 2020.2.LTS across all APIs. No support will be available for older or newer LTS versions, and support will cease after 12 months.

We commit to providing fixes for bugs discovered during this period that block core student-facing use cases only. No changes will be made to explicitly break existing support (e.g. removing polyfills), however, neither non-critical bug fixes nor new feature work will be tested in these browser versions.

Flash - end of support notice

Learnosity will be removing Flash support, in line with the end-of-life plans of the Flash vendor, Adobe. Flash content will be blocked by browsers starting January 12, 2021. You should plan for all your applications to have no reliance on Adobe Flash by this date. Adobe recommends that users uninstall the Flash player immediately.

Since October 2017, the WebRTC library has been used by Learnosity to record and playback audio. Flash was only used as a fallback mode when WebRTC was not available. See Browser Support for more information.
