Is there any version of the Hebrew Bible that has a "read aloud" feature? I love the "follow the bouncing ball" with the Greek New Testament.

I understand that individual Hebrew lemmas can be pronounced.

While rooting around in my Logos library and the Logos website, I discovered that Logos does have some audio Hebrew Bibles available:

  • Audio Reading of Hebrew Old & New Testament from the Bible Society of Israel (https://www.logos.com/product/198012/audio-reading-of-hebrew-old-and-new-testament). Somehow I have this in my library. It must have come with one of my base packages, because I don't remember purchasing it. It has some fun features, such as using reverb when God speaks, e.g. in Genesis 1:3 יְהִ֣י א֑וֹר ("let there be light"). It also includes a Hebrew translation of the New Testament, since the intended audience is native Hebrew speakers.
  • Letteris Hebrew Bible (https://www.logos.com/product/198013/letteris-hebrew-bible). This is read by Abraham Shmuelof for Talking Bibles International. It is completely free.

So Logos has the audio Bible in Hebrew. If the Read Aloud command were added to the Hebrew Bibles, it would be fantastic. The trickier part would be linking the text so the "bouncing ball" could follow the reading.
