I use read aloud in logos 7 (windows 10) and I slow down the reading speed 75x but it is still too fast for the type of book I am working through.  Is there a way to make further adjustments and also to change the voice?

Currently Faithlife developers have implemented four Read Aloud speeds:

  • 0.75
  • 1.0
  • 1.4
  • 2.0

macOS 10.12 System Preferences for Accessibility Speech has two slower speeds (along with modification to keep same voice tone at different speeds)

Narrator option(s) depend on resource. Greek has one for New Testament audio while some English Bibles have version specific voice and system narrator.

On PC and Mac, the speed adjustments are as KSFJ listed above—they cannot be changed.

There seems to be issues in changing the voice on Windows 10. See this thread for a possible solution:

Read Aloud speeds implemented by Faithlife are the same on Windows and Mac as are Resource Narrators:

FYI: macOS includes many system narrator voices while Windows has many voice purchase options from a variety of vendors.

Apologies since currently not know if Windows accessibility options for speech affect Read Aloud.

A slower reading option would be much appreciated for the Greek New Testament. It would serve beginning Greek students better.
