Is there anyway to listen to a logos book as an audio?

There is a read aloud feature found under the 3 dots panels menu that is at the right side of every resource.  The 3 dots will open a drop down menu.  From there, you can find the read aloud feature.

Mark gave a good answer, but to expand a bit. 

There are three different kinds of "read aloud" in Logos. 

  • Computer generated using your operating system's text to speech capabilities. 
  • Follow along Audio Book "read aloud" in a very limited number of bibles (i.e. ESV, LEB). 
  • Regular Audio Books. 

The second and third of those options are audio books with human readers, but only the second one is synced with the text in the book. For the third, you would just purchase the audio book in Logos (if available). Personally, I do not go out of my way to get regular audiobooks in Logos.

Is there a way to "read aloud" with the mobile app?  I cannot find the "read aloud" option on the app!

Good question.  I have not found a read aloud option on the app either.  For that, I have been using audio books in Logos.

I suppose there would be no reason for audio books if a read aloud feature was available on the app

It depends. 

Everything I wrote above applies on mobile. <IF> your OS has a “text to speech” feature, you may be able to use the computer generated “read aloud.” I know that this is possible on iOS utilizing the “accessibility“ features built into iOS, although I have not done so. On the desktop app, there is a built in way to access this, but on iOS it is done strictly through the iOS settings.
