Hi, I got this error when using MIA Add-ons, the audio part is not working for all the words. Please help if you know how to fix. Many thanks.

An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed.
If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools>Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem.
When you've discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the add-ons section of our support site.

    I might be wrong, but I think MIA developers don't monitor the official Anki support forum and as far as I know the recommended version for MIA add-ons is 2.1.22 (or 2.1.23 on Mac).
