Sound Files do not work in Google Chrome

I have tried playing the sound files associated with the Kanji or words and it never plays in Google Chrome.
In the Notes or any section, if there is a sound file next to a word it plays in Firefox but not in Google Chrome.

Tested and works in Firefox.
Can this be fixed?

    Hello JanetMerai,

    I am sorry for this problem,

    There are many reports from users about this, I am still trying to find a way to fix this. Currently, it doesn't work in both Chrome and Safari.

    Thank You,

    If the sound files are .wav files, they only work in Opera and Firefox.

    Format IE 8 Firefox 3.5 Opera 10.5 Chrome 3.0 Safari 3.0

    Hi, Artur.
    You can't edit it because Beeant hasn't implemented that feature yet. I'd like to edit my posts, too :(
    And no, it's not much readable, but understandable. ;D

    About the sounds, I think it's not a file format problem, but a javascript compatibility issue.

    Last time I tried with Opera 10 (probably 10.4, I don't remember it), the sounds were not working, but now they work with Opera 10.62.

    To be more specific, Chrome/Safari don't work (they use the same javascript engine), but Opera/FF/IE do (tested with newer versions: IE8.0.6, Opera 10.62, FireFox 3.6.10, Safari 5.0.2.

    Btw, I think the files are .mp3

    I'm having the same problem as well. But I know how to pronounce them already.
