I think I need to get my eyes checked. I was playing around trying to learn the logos 9 software. I brought this back when it was 6 I believe. I found I can set it to read to me. That is so cool. Can I change the voice and speed? Or is the male voice is all I have? I am sure this may be a disability feature but, still cool.

There are two t types of “read aloud.” The best is the audio book feature. That is recorded by a real person and there aren’t many resources with the audiobook read aloud. The second is the computer generated read aloud. The voice comes from your operating system and/or additional software you have purchased and installed outside of Logos. Those voices aren’t related to Logos and the options depend upon your external software and operating system.

Hi Randall:

Expanding on Bama's reply, if you're listening from a resource in the main Logos window, a set of controls appear just to the left of the Layouts button on the right side of the main toolbar. One of those allows you to cycle through different speeds; another lets you skip back 30 seconds. Also, as long as the pane for the resource being read is active, Ctrl+R toggles Pause/Play.

If you are interested in being bored by more minutia on this and my recommendations on purchasing third-party voices, reply back. Smile  (Let us know if you use Windows or Mac.)

Ctrl - R is what I am talking about. Under read aloud I see Show word by word indicator but it is grey out. I see the controls on top but anything other then 1x is not for me.
