Are there any plans for a "read aloud" feature to be implemented with the Logos iPhone app?

Peace, Rob

Hi Rob

You might want to look at the thread at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/45254.aspx and complete the survey referenced by Bob Pritchett (Logos CEO)

Graham - the link that you gave is for audio books, which is technically different than "read aloud." An audio book has a human recording of the text, while "read aloud" uses text-to-speech technologies.

Rob - Bob has addressed this issue before as well. It remains a possibility, but there are issues with licensing. Apparently, Logos would need to get additional permissions to enable text-to-speech capabilities for eBooks (just like Amazon does - not all kindle books are available to be read aloud).
