When I’m at work I like to check in and read your stories. I don’t want the sound playing while I’m working.
Our new site allows you to both read and watch most of our stories. If you visit the homepage and click on any of the thumbnail images, or the “Play Now” button, you'll be taken to the story page and the video will start playing automatically. However if you click on the headline itself, the video won't play and you can read the full text of the story directly below. That way, you can access our stories at work or whenever you don't want to bother the people around you.
