Windows 10Pro (completely updated)

16G RAM
~300G HD space available (of 1TB SSD)
L8 - fully synchronized and updated.

The resource is the LEB (in the Old Testament): Harris, W. Hall, III, Elliot Ritzema, Rick Brannan, Douglas Mangum, John Dunham, Jeffrey A. Reimer, and Micah Wierenga, eds. The Lexham English Bible. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2012.

When I hit CTRL-R (or use the command, or select read aloud from resource information) it reads using the system narrator.

even when I select to use "Marv Alan" in the info panel. it still uses the system narrator.

the other part of this problem is that I want to use the Marv Alan voice so that I have the option to see the words highlighted.  that never happens, whether I select the system or this one.

Trying to get ready for class, very frustrating. Can anyone else try this to verify?

JT (alabama24):

I have bid and on the list to get the LEB OT audio since it was originally announced some time ago.

however, I did not realize that is what this was. If I understand correctly, then. this is a BUG - since it apparently gives options to allow reading from someone (including word highlights) - that isn't available. it is a bug because it should be grayed out, right?

HOWEVER: I have the CSB - Christian Standard Bible. Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2017.
and it's audio - Christian Standard Bible Audio. Nashville, TN: Holman, 2017.
and when I select Read aloud - I ONLY have an option for system narrator.

When I do this for ESV - it all works okay as intended.

So there is apparently a BUG in the LEB (shows options that should not be)

And a BUG in CSB - has no options when it should.

I also have audio for the KJV but it doesn't give an option to read and highlight text either - another BUG.
