Great! Hopefully the reading will be Sephardi, or Oriental.

Great, Phil! A number of us are very anxious to have the control and convenience that an audio Hebrew TANAK would bring to Logos compared to such current alternatives as:

Hey Phil, I just wanted to point out another recent, high quality audio-bible from the Bible Society in Israel. Their recordings cover both the OT and the (Modern) Hebrew New Testament (HNT) and come in both dramatized and undramatized versions (the only difference being the inclusion of music & sound effects). Thankfully, the text of the HNT is already available on Logos (here). Aramaic sections are apparently translated into biblical Hebrew (e.g., as in Daniel). (By the way, anyone who can read much of the Hebrew OT shouldn't have too much trouble reading the Modern HNT, especially the narrative portions.) You can find many of these recordings available for free:

Hebrew OT and HNT (Dramatized):

http://haktuvim.co.il/ 

HNT (Dramatized):

HNT (Undramatized):
http://www.bible.is/HBRHMT/Matt/1/N 

I know it's been a few months since you posted, but thanks for looking into this Phil!

Adam Olean:
The use of the Vav rather than a Waaw is unnerving. I made it to verse 4 before reflexively clicking the pause button.

Meh...NOT Biblical Hebrew.

I'd certainly welcome a more antiquated pronunciation scheme(s). I rather like "Restored Koine", for instance—although the best overall recording I've heard so far of the entire GNT uses a Modern (or Demotic) Greek pronunciation. Randall Buth has stated that professional readers/narrators in Israel often use at least some archaisms, although they certainly fall short of a "Restored Hebrew" (e.g., of Moses or David). That said, there are benefits to learning both modern and ancient pronunciations for those who are interested.

It looks like other Bible software programs already offer audio editions of the Hebrew-Aramaic OT and/or the Modern Hebrew NT. Logos has started offering audiobooks, so why not excellent, Hebrew-Aramaic recordings of the Scriptures? (An alternative, non-"Erasmian" recording of the GNT would be most welcome too!)

Hey Faithlife... cash in hand... please sell to me! I miss having hebrew audio in Logos!

Thanks, Steve! I don't know: Things seem awfully quiet in Bellingham after another several months down the road. I haven't given up, but I'm grateful for the excellent recordings that are already available online!

I think Faithlife could really promote and facilitate increased fluency in the biblical languages, but that may be left to a few but growing number of individuals and groups like Randall Buth and Biblical Language Center. There are also a growing number of resources and supplements available online for Modern Hebrew. As I recall, John Schwandt, Executive Director of Logos Mobile Ed, has taught Classical and Koine Greek conversationally through his Institute of Biblical Greek.

Lee, your emoticon to the contrary notwithstanding, my response is, "Right sentiment, wrong tone." BTW, from the number of times I've posted to this thread one can see I share your impatience! Shalom, shalom, Steve

Steve, that sentence I wrote is not my own. No offence was intended at all. It's a famous comedic catchphrase, ironically describing a desperately compelling product. Apologies if the reference wasn't clear.

Lee, was just about to post this link explaining your post, but you beat me to the punch with an explanation!
