Welcome to the forums. You probably want to go in a modify your email address so that no bot picks it up. See the More on the upper right of your post and select edit. There is frequently debates in the forum as to what the correct pronunciation of Hebrew is ... chances are it changed significantly over the time of the writing of the Bible. All of which is a long introduction to the answer that Logos doesn't have the Hebrew pronunciation yet ... but you can find the Hebrew text read in several accents on the web.

In addition to what MJ wrote, I think the pronunciation style you choose is really of little importance for the study of the OT.  I would suggest, however, that you adopt the modern Israeli pronunciation since by doing so you will be better able to understand them should you travel to Israel.  The same battle rages in Greek regarding whether to use to artificial Erasmian pronunciation (which is not totally uniform throughout the world) or to use a more modern method.  Some use modern Greek pronunciation and some use a reconstructed pronunciation which is close to modern, but without the cigar.  One thing that pronunciation or paleography does is to better enable the student to understand how certain variations in the text arose.  I think this tends to be more of a division between pronunciation for Greek and paleography for Hebrew.

Max, 

Take a look at the Hebrew Audio Pronunciations.  But don't hold your breath, it's been a very long wait.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.
