Detect system volume is on/ off when the page is loaded

Hi, I have created a click and Highlight question when the page loads it will automatically play the audio. But here my requirement is when the page is loaded we should check such that if system volume is off we need to detect with system volume and show to respondent as like a popup (stating them to on the volume)

Sorry, but this is not really possible.  As a security precaution, browsers are very careful about what information about the user they will share with websites.  System volume is one such protected field.

As an alternative, you could add text to your page or to the previous page informing the respondent that there is audio they need to listen to.

Thank you, Zachary, Displaying text like a popup will be helpful somewhat to respondent
