Playing Text With Audio Files
To use pre-recorded audio files (Scourby, etc.), in Preferences/Audio Settings use the
"Link Audio Files" Button to select the folder containing the files, and check the "Use
Audio Files" button.
Multiple audio sets can be installed. Use the "Link Audio Files" Button to link each parent
folder separately and then select the desired set in the "Linked Audio Groups" list.
If the files are on CDs or a DVD, it is best if the files/folders are copied to the
computer hard drive under a common folder.

Timing data for several audio sets, including Alexander Scourby, is available from
the Bible Analyzer Store for exact verse/audio synchronization. This will allow

more information. Without the timing data available from the Bible Analyzer Store, verse
highlighting is calculated by approximation and can occasionally get out of
synchronization. Verse highlighting can be turned off in Preferences.
Selecting Start/Stop Verses
If a reference is clicked in the Bible Tree, Commentary, Dictionary, Results, or Book
page, or entered in the Quick Entry, verse reading will stop and the last verse read will
become the current verse.
The Verse Read feature will start reading with the current reference when started. If the Continue Reading Next Chapter option is checked in Preferences, it will continue reading
When reading is started within a chapter, in Audio Reading mode the speech
may be slightly out of synchronization with the verse. This is normal with the
variation of times in the various audio speakers and files. In TTS mode the
speech will be in precise sync.
