If the app has been open for a long period of time, force-quitting the app from the app-switcher or restarting the iPad might fix the sound issue.

Clearing other apps from memory

Sometimes you might have a lot of apps that are still running in the background which can eat up a lot of their processing capability. It's a good idea to close those so that they're not processing and updating in the background.

If none of these solutions work, please contact us with your username, device, and browser details and a brief description of the issue you're experiencing and our Customer Support Team will be able to investigate further.
