I just purchased Audio Reading of Hebrew Old & New Testament, intending to use it to read along with text like the Greek NT Audio does. 

Which Hebrew OT text should I choose to find the audio read along option?  (Or does it only work as a standalone audio recording.)

Both Hebrew audio bibles are standalone recordings. They are not synced to any text, sorry.

For anyone else who comes across this thread, here are the two Hebrew audio bibles:

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

It is standalone audio. I use it with this

Thanks to all for the answers. I just grabbed the Letteris audio. It looks to me like the same audio that’s free on the internet, but I like having it in my Logos library.

To summarize...

There are two Hebrew Audiobibles:

And there is also an integrated Hebrew pronunciation tool

Bob:
This is apparently NOT (yet) integrated into text-syncronized daily devotional audio or the “read aloud” option on the text that the Greek NT Audio provides.

For clarification: the “read aloud” function has two different methods: 1) a computer generated voice provided by the user’s operating system and 2) an audiobook voice. The audiobook “read aloud“ only works when the audiobook and the ebook is the exact same resource AND FL has added that capability. 

I don’t know about these resources you have referenced. Is there a 100% corresponding ebook to the audio? Just as you could not have the ESV “read aloud” feature work in the NIV, you would not be able to have one Greek or Hebrew resource be “read aloud” in another.

Thanks for the clarification. In L9 Win Desktop I saw (but don’t remember where) the narrator options for Greek. It makes sense that they have to be supported by Logos.

For Greek NT it works as one would hope...

* From NA28 or UBS5 or SBL GNT,  I can choose “Read aloud Greek Audio New Testament(John Schwandt). The texts also show a speaker icon by the title in library.

* It reads the Greek audio and moves a dot like the old bouncing ball on song lyrics, and scrolls also.

For Hebrew it seems to be a work in progress.

* When I look in my library for Hebrew Bibles with a speaker icon, I don’t see any on, e.g. Lexham Hebrew Bible or BHS (SESB2.0 or Werkgroep Informatia).

* There’s no read along with text function for the Hebrew that I can find.

* It apparently needs to have that functionality added, so maybe this is a first step, and it’s being considered as a future capability? That would be awesome if it eventually matches the Greek audio capabilities.

Glad to have Hebrew Bible audio in Logos, but very much hoping it grows to the level of current Greek support.
