2.No AR content is popping up: have you made sure all of the triggerimage is in your viewfinder?
3.No AR content is popping up on my kindle/e-inkdevice: please adjust your device screenbrightness. If the screen is too bright or too dim, the image cannot be recognisedby the app.
4.I can't hear any sound: check the icon. Only video/music ARcontent has sound.
5.I can't hear any sound, and it should beplaying some: please ensure your volume is not muted,and turned up.
6.The content keeps disappearing: ensure you keep the viewfinder focused onthe trigger image so that the AR content will remain overlaid on your screen.If you move too far away from the trigger image, the AR content will disappear.Activate it again by re-scanning the trigger image.
7.Can I access the eBook and the AR contenton the same device? No.Aurasma uses your device camera, so you will have to read the book on adifference device to the device you are using Aurasma with.
8.It's just not working - I've triedeverything: Please refer to the Aurasma help files,and contact their help desk if you are still having issues.
