Problems With Audio Ads

I’m not a great fan of internet page ads though they are essential to pay sites like this. Most of them I can ignore but the audio track ones that jump to life suddenly can be problematic. I often use public library computers (at home on my own as I type this), and the loud audio track booming out annoys other library users, especially as library computers hide the volume and mute buttons really well.

I do mute the volume at home if not listening to audio of my choosing

I also really hate this type of advert that has audio set to autoplay. I usually play music while online, so this type of thing is really annoying.

it is incredibly distracting and just a nuisance really.
