While sifting through the books in my library, i came across "That’s easy for you to say: your quick guide to pronouncing Bible names". It pronounces difficult names and places words found in our English Bibles.

i also discovered a way to tie it into our Right-Click menu so that i can right-click on a name and then use the menu to navigate to that word in "That’s easy for you to say: your quick guide to pronouncing Bible names" and easily be able to listen to it being pronounced.

Below are the steps that i found to get it in the Right-Click menu

Open the Library window, then

a) Click on Prioritize
    (this shows the prioritizing panel on the right side of the Library window)
     In this prioritize panel locate your Dictionaries and make them visible in the prioritizing panel.

b) In the Find box type:  that's easy
    (this locates the book That’s easy for you to say: your quick guide to pronouncing Bible names
      in our library)

c) Now drag the book (That's easy for you ...) over to the prioritizing panel and
    drop it in your Dictionary area (make SURE that is within the first 5 dictionary entries; only the
    first 5 dictionary entries appear in the Right-Click menu).

Now let's check to make sure that our That's easy... book shows up in the Right-Click menu.

In an English Bible (e.g. NIV) find a difficult name in the Bible (e.g. Epenetus found in Rom 16:5) and Right-click on this name to bring up the Right-Click menu.

    

Now in the Right-Click menu on the right make sure that Selection is selected.
Then on the left scroll down to the bottom where the dictionaries are listed and
you should see our book "That's easy for you to say...".

So click on that dictionary menu item and Logos will open it and position it to our word (e.g. Epenetus)

   

Now just click on the audio icon to have Logos pronounce our difficult word in English

Thanks ... and do keep the tips coming. You have some good ones.

Note also that if you own the English Audio Pronunciations (https://www.logos.com/product/45488/english-audio-pronunciations-dataset) dataset, which is include with most base packages, you can have Logos pronounce the name from the Factbook tool.

Right click on the word and select the entity entry (1), then click Factbook (2) to open the Factbook tool.

Then click on the speaker icon next to the name:
