Volume control

I have an iPad 7th Gen. running IOS 14.8. I am aware of the volume buttons on the side of the device and the slide down control in the upper right corner of the screen. However, there are some sites where no matter what I do the volume is still too low. Is there anything in Settings that will allow me to increase the volume even further?

Apps almost always change the system volume, but websites often have their own volume controls. Those affect the volume before it gets fed to the iPad, affecting the maximum loudness. Think of it this way, if the singer is whispering into the microphone, there is only so much the amplifier can do to make it louder.

Look for the volume settings on the site or media playback interface, and make sure they aren't set low.

Of course it's possible that the site itself produces low audio levels, or the media does. That should be pretty rare, at least on mainstream sites.
