Trying to play an audio file in the bb10 simulator

Well, in the last port-a-thon, I was developing an app and faced the following situation: I needed to test an app that plays sounds in the simulator, but every time I clicked the button that was meant played the sound it doesn't works. It works fine in the Ripple.


That was my first aplication using HTML5 and WebWorks, so I want to know if anybody else have that problem.


  1. Ripple 0.9.11
  2. WebWorks SDK
  3. BB10 Alpha Simulator 10.0.09
  4. I followed this strategy (https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/htmlaudioelement.html)


var audio = document.createElement('audio');



var audio = new Audio();

Both with no success


Any ideas?

Thank you, in advance for any help =')
