I am working in a virtual environment (e.g. CITRIX) and do not hear any sound on my course
Due to settings in CITRIX, the audio in our seminars will not play if launched within the CITRIX environment or if you are using Terminal Services. In order to watch a seminar, you will need to log into your account through a browser outside of the CITRIX environment (i.e. one that is installed directly on your computer) and relaunch the seminar from your My Account page.

I just finished watching an online seminar, but I get an error saying that I have not completed all the course.

Sometimes, it does take 10-15 mins for the time tracking to catch up. If you have waited this long, and still cannot access the certificate please try the steps below.


• Wait 10 minutes and try to access the certificate again.

• Clear your "Temporary Internet Files" and try again.

• If the above two methods to not work then you will need to send us a "Support Request", or call us at 877.880.1335


Why does my video stop every 10-15 minutes and go back?
Some courses require a confirmation response to verify attendance. Every 10-15 minutes a window will pop up and ask if you are there and still watching. If there is no response after one minute then the course stops. When you click on play again it will go back to the last confirmed segment.

If you were watching the course and didn’t see the window you most likely have a popup blocker running on your system that is preventing the user confirmation window from coming up.

You will need to either temporarily disable the pop-up blocker or add our site to your exceptions list.

I am having trouble with the audio.

This can be caused by a number of things... Your computer's speakers could be...

  • Incorrectly plugged in (in the wrong jack).
  • Not plugged into a power source.
  • The volume knob might be turned down.
  • The power button on your speakers could be turned off.
  • A mute setting could be selected.
  • A volume control bar could be turned down.
  • There could be a problem with the 'soundcard'.
  • A missing Codec.


If you are having trouble hearing a stream which contains only audio (no video options) download and install the following file:

For computer volume, and sound related issues, Refer to this Computer Volume Guide.

If you still cannot hear the seminar, contact Legalspan technical support at (877) 880-1335.

When I click on the "Launch Seminar" button, nothing happens. What should I do?
Popup Blockers:

If you use a Popup Blocker, such as Ad Subtract, STOPzilla, Stop-the-Pop, or one of the many others on the market, you will need to disable it in order to view our seminars. These utilities prevent the Javascript "window open" command from running which prevents our viewer from opening.

Click Here for an illustrated guide to disabling most pop-up blockers

Some ways of getting around a pop-up blocker are to hold down the [Shift] key, while pressing the [Launch Seminar] button or Right-clicking the [Launch Seminar] link and clicking [Open In New Window].

Viewer May Already be Open:

For a quick way to cycle through all the programs that are open in you system. Hold down the [Alt] key while tapping the [Tab] key. When you let go of the [Alt] key, the program that is selected will then come to the front.
