In case you missed the splash screen notification or the Logos update tooltips: The ESV Audio resource is here!  My admiration and appreciation to the Logos crew, publisher, narrator, et al for a significant addition to my library.  A couple of notes from my perspective:

  • The "nuclear strike" marker as each verse is narrated, vs. the LEB gray bouncing ball beneath each word is both distracting and oddly unsynchronized.  I.E., the flash occurs a second or so after the narrator has started reading the verse, and occasionally blips the screen on several words throughout the verse ala the old Missile Command video game.
  • The choice of narrator is likely not left up to Logos, but the absence of continuity with Marv in the LEB is certainly noticeable.  Initially, I wasn't much of a fan, but the several subvocalizations when the text alternates between speakers is at least mildly amusing (ref. the voice of Jesus in Mark 1-9 for example, etc.).

Now, please don't take my critique as being, well, critical.  I really am very very please with the direction at Logos of adding an audio component to books; and the ESV being read by Mr. Heath is a VAST improvement over the stock MS Anna voice [This spot reserved for Apple aficionado's obligatory commercials)

So!  Thank you Logos for a substantive (and personally meaningful) addition to the library!

The bouncing gray ball is still available, it just has to be turned on. In the resource menu under "narrators" there's a options that reads "show word by word indicator." Check it, and you're good to go.

Does this work only with the ESV?

My 'show word by word indicator' is grayed, for example, in The Outline Bible.

It only works with bibles if their is an audio book associated with it. At this time, the ESV & LEB.

The Free Download from Christian Audio for the month of January 2014 is the ESV Hear the World Audio Bible.  Here is the link:  http://christianaudio.com/free/    I wonder if it will be possible to link to your Itunes version when using the Read Aloud option.  It would be nice so that we can use it while working offline.
