I never thought I'd live to see this day:

Order now while it's still in pre-pub if you haven't yet:

https://www.logos.com/product/5960/hebrew-audio-pronunciations 

Now let's pray there aren't any last minute glitches over the weekend, and that there aren't any MAJOR flubs that we discover in the first week like we did with the first release of the Learn to Use Biblical Greek and Hebrew with Logos Bible Software DVDs (a wrong letter in the Hebrew alphabet in Lesson 1! Ouch, how embarrassing). Please, Logos, I hope you've proofed this one carefully. I've learned through experience (time and time again) to expect disasters for major new products like this, which isn't how I want to be anticipating it.

I always prefer to set myself up for the worst case scenario and then be pleasantly surprised, rather than risk being blindsided by bad news I never saw coming.

Are you referring to Rosie's last paragraph or the first one?  Time

Evidently both, though his emoticons are in the reverse order of my optimism/pessimism switcheroo.

It will Not work with Logos4
It also requires Logos5 users to have at least the Minimal Crossgrade (as it needs the Lexham Hebrew Bible).

Neither of these statements is true. (Sorry for the incorrect information; I'll try to follow up with Sales.)

Thanks Bradley!!!
Guess i will put it back in my cart.

Here is the email i receive just a few minutes ago

Hi Steve,

The Hebrew Audio Pronunciations will not work with Logos 4. You are correct it requires Lexham Hebrew Bible. You would need at least the Logos 5 Minimal Crossgrade. Your price is $xxx.xx (including tax). Let me know what you would like to do.

God’s blessings,
John Groce

I've had this resource on order since 2/5/2010, and there are some who go back even further. It's the longest-standing pre-pub in the history of Logos, I think. Bob Pritchett has documented some of the bumps in the process of getting this done back in 2009 and 2012; Vincent Setterholm provided another update in 2013.

I should clarify. It doesn't need the LHB, but the pronunciations are for the lemmas in LHB. If you try to use a different Hebrew text (e.g., AFAT or BHW), you may not be able to get a pronunciation for every word.

However, since all English reverse interlinears are now based on the LHB, you will get good results there. All pronunciations are also available through the "Pronunciations" Tool, just like the Greek Lemmas are.

We would like to include conversion tables that make the Hebrew Pronunciations work better with AFAT and BHW (where possible). However, this would have made the resource incompatible with Logos 4 (and we wanted to be able to deliver it to customers who owned Logos 4 when they placed their pre-pub order, and still haven't upgraded).

It's possible that we will ship a Logos-5-only update that makes the resource better for Logos 5 customers. I'm not sure when this might happen... hopefully it won't take another five years. Smile

O.K.  Rosie has talked me into it.  Although I probably will never learn Hebrew. 

Being able to pronounce words might be helpful.  On the other hand, pronouncing can lead to confusion.  20 years ago my wife and I were at a restaurant in Lyon, France.  While Lyon is known as a center for good food, less known is that they have confusing menus.  A couple of college students noticed us puzzling over the menus and offered to help.  The girl helping me was totally confounded that I was able to read the menu aloud, even with a good accent, but I had no comprehension about what I was reading.  Elle dit: "Vous comprends!"  Mais, je ne comprends pas.

It is exciting to see this become a reality.

I'm looking forward to this.

FYI, for those who were wanting to hear some sample pronunciations before deciding whether to buy this, they've now updated the product description page with a video that shows the Hebrew Audio Pronunciations tool in use. It's very cool!
