Slide Layer Properties - won't play audio

Hello!

I have many slide layers where the learner clicks a smart shape on the base layer, opening each layer up. I don't want the base layer objects to appear on each slide layer so I checked "hide base layer objects". Each layer also has an audio track.

When I check "hide base layer objects"..the objects are hidden but the audio won't play. When I uncheck "hide base layer objects" I can see one image on the base layer and the audio will play.

I've checked to see if I accidentally selected the object on the base layer in the timeline to show but I didn't.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening?
