Pythonista sound output only via headphones
On my iPad2 iOS 7.1.2 sound output from Pythonista (1.5) via the speech or sound module only works when I plug in headphones or connect it to my mixing desk, not through the builtin speaker (no sound at all). I checked the volume level and I can produce sound output through other apps normally.
Is that normal? If not, any idea what could cause this?
Perhaps you have the mute switch on? A lot of other apps ignore this, and on an iPad you often won't notice the mute switch because you're typically not receiving calls...

With regards to sounds, can you produce chords (more than one tone simultaneously)?
Perhaps you have the mute switch on?
No, in the settings app under "Nicht stören", "Stumm" is set to "Nur im Sperrzustand" (the other option being "Immer") and there is no Moon symbol in the status bar, which would normally indicate mute mode.

Yes, with the piano demo script I can play several keys simultaneously and get polyphonic output (via headphones).
I meant the physical mute switch at the side of your device, not the "do not disturb" mode – those are two different things.
There is no such switch on my iPad. Mute is turned on when the volume rocker switch is used to turn the audio level all the way down. But in this case there's no audio output at all from any application.
To my knowledge, every single iPad model has a mute switch (that can be configured to lock rotation instead, in which case the mute switch can be found in control center).
Ok, I've always used that switch as a rotation lock switch and that's the way it's configured (just checked). The mute button in the control center (the panel that shows when you swipe from the bottom) is also not active.
I'm pretty sure that sound is not muted in any way. As I'm saying ALL other apps I checked have normal sound output through the builtin speaker.
Alright, it seems to have been the mute switch in the control center after all. Sound output from Pythonista now works.
I guess the mute switch was activated and was implicitly deactivated when I toggled the setting for the hardware switch between rotation lock and mute control in the settings for testing.
It also seems that all the music apps I'm using, including the iTunes music player, ignore the mute switch. Actually I have yet to find an app on the iPad that honors it (Twitter maybe?).
