V7.0.7: How to play a sound?

I have this command:

    {
      "Command": "executeScript_Sandbox",
      "Target": "const audio = new Audio(\"https://translate.google.com/translate_tts?ie=UTF-8&tl=en&client=tw-ob&q=Testing+UI+Vision+audio\");\naudio.play();",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": ""
    },

It used to play fine. But now with the V7.0.7, I can’t run this command.
I changed it into executeScript but it still doesn’t work.

What should I do?

Interesting, I confirmed the problem. We will look into it.

If you have more such conversion issues, please post them here and we will check it ASAP.

Developments tells us that the challenge with Audio is that the play action has to be triggered by a real user input like clicks. The previous executeScript_Sandbox could work around that previously probably because it’s an extension page instead of a normal page. But manifest V3 blocks this.

Here is a solution for audio replay. The “trick” is to use selectWindow | TAB=OPEN | url to audio

{
  "Name": "audio",
  "CreationDate": "2022-4-26",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "open",
      "Target": "https://ui.vision",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "selectWindow",
      "Target": "TAB=OPEN",
      "Value": "https://translate.google.com/translate_tts?ie=UTF-8&tl=en&client=tw-ob&q=Testing+UI+Vision+audio",
      "Description": "Play audio in new tab"
    },
    {
      "Command": "selectWindow",
      "Target": "TAB=0",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": "Go back to main tab to continue with the macro"
    },
    {
      "Command": "clickAndWait",
      "Target": "linkText=Enterprise-Grade Security",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": "...this line continues the main macro"
    }
  ]
}
