If anyone is interested in this and you create a PB with it, could you please let me know if the Read Out Loud feature works with this..  I can't get it to work..

Did you compile it as a bible? That was my error at first, too. When compiling as a monograph, Read Aloud works fin (well, as fine as this automated staccato voices will do at all)

I think the issue is that this docx document only technically qualifies as a PB-source in that it uses the valid document format, but otherwise does not. It has no milestones (e.g. for chapters and verses) of the bible, which throws off the system when trying to parse chunks to the Read Aloud functionality. My system actually crashed out of memory, since L6 probably tried to hand over the whole document at once to the OS. In fact, the PB contains stuff that help nicely laying out a printed bible - such as a nice two-column layout and headers indicating the book one is currently reading - , but will end up messing an electronic version that looks differently.

As I said, compiling as a monograph will do for Read Aloud, since it has chapter headings. Currently this bible will work like a Vyrso book anyway, not like a real Logos bible (which is the same as a well-crafted PB bible). You could try inserting the tagging for bible chapters, take out the layouting text that produces garbage and maybe even get rid of annoying double spaces, then compiling as type bible would make sense and Read Aloud would probably work then, too.
