All Logos resources feature the option to read the text aloud using the computer’s system narrator or, in some resources, a recorded human narrator. Here’s how to access and use the feature.
Note: System narration is disabled on some resources at the publisher's request.
Skip ahead to:
- Navigate to the passage you want to hear.
- Press Ctrl+R (Windows) or Cmd+R (Mac) to begin narration.
- A media player bar appears in the top-right of the window.
- Press Ctrl+R / Cmd+R again to stop narration and close the media player bar.
Media Player Controls
The media controls from left to right are:
- Pause/Play stops or starts narration without closing the media player bar.
- The title of the resource being read.
- The progress and elapsed time in the chapter (or section)
Note: Elapsed time is based on 1x speed and does not change when the reading speed is altered.
- The 30 button rewinds the audio playback 30 seconds.
- Click 1x to change the narration speed to .75x, 1x, 1.4x, or 2x.
- Clicking X closes the media player and stops playback.
For resources with a dedicated narrator, such as the LEB (New Testament) and ESV, you can switch between the human and system narrator.
Note: Find your resources with human narrators by opening the Library and entering audio in the search bar.
To change the Narrator:
- Open the resource’s panel menu by clicking.
- Expand the narrator options next to Read Aloud.
- Select a human narrator or the System Narrator.
For example, the Lexham English Bible (LEB) features the option to choose Marv Allen or the System Narrator.
Note: Selecting Show word by word indicator activates a small gray dot that synchronizes with the narration.
