Steps to reproduce

When using Microsoft Edge 15 browser on a Microsoft Surface Pro device, there is a problem with playing 3 or more audio files. The 1st and 2nd audio plays, however, the 3rd, 4th, etc. audio doesn’t play.

The same website or page works on a desktop computer using Edge and other browsers, as well as most tablets. I have only encountered this issue when using Microsoft Edge on a Microsoft Surface device. I have tried on multiple Microsoft Surface devices so I don’t believe there is a problem with the device other than it can’t play 3 or more audio files. No problems were found when troubleshooting the device.

This can be tested using the following website:
Copy the audio controls tag to duplicate the audio file 3 or more times.

Is this a known issue? We hope there is a resolution as this problem is affecting some of our e-learning/ online courses from being sold.
