FAQs

Can I disable the 'latest audio' playlist?

Yes, you can temporarily or permanently disable the 'latest audio' playlist. This will prevent the player from rendering where it has been embedded. Its URL will return an error. See instructions here.


Will the player slow down my website?

Our customizable player should not slow down your website. We’ve designed BeyondWords to minimize any effect on latency. Our default JavaScript player is lightweight and, when embedded via iFrame, it only loads after all other page content has loaded. We’re also the only text-to-speech service that transcodes audio for HLS (HTTP Live Streaming), which splits audio into 15-second segments at different bit rates to ensure frictionless listening.
