Pronunciation of jouer and crier in Le Futur

The lesson states that the e in, for example, 'joueront' is not pronounced.

Please explain why this is so when the verb in the following sentence, taken from the lesson, the e is pronounced.:

Nous volerons dans une heure.

Hi Stewart,

The "e" in "joueront" or "crieront" (inherited from the infinitive as explained in the lesson) are not pronounced because they are placed after a vowel. In "voleront", the "e" is placed after a consonant, and must be pronounced. Hope this helps!
