I appreciate having the audio version of some Bibles. But the 1x reading speed is often he too fast, particularly with a complex passage. I am surprised the Android app lacks the slower reading options as on the desktop. I would like .75x and maybe even .5x speed options. We need this more than we need 2x speed, which sounds like Alvin the chipmunk. Big Smile

Is this an audiobook, or is it the "read aloud" feature of Android?

All audio play features in Android cannot go slower than 1x. The default speed for courses is usually pretty good, but the ESV Bible is read pretty fast. A slower speed option would also be useful for reading Greek and Hebrew for language learners. Desktop allows .75x, but even there .5x would be great for students learning Greek and Hebrew. But my initial request qas based on the reading speed of the ESV. A good narration, but faster than I would recommend for someone reading the Bible in a church service.

OK. The ESV is an audiobook, which FL may be able to control.
