Verse Timing Audio Data
A BIBLE ANALYZER ADD-ON THAT OFFERS EXACT
VERSE TIMING FOR EIGHT AUDIO BIBLE SETS!
KJV Audio Bible Sets Indexed:
Alexander Scourby (3 sets)
David Cochran Heath
Faith Comes By Hearing Group (2 Sets)
Hearing the Bible read aloud has a power all its own. In fact, throughout most of history hearing the Bible read by others was the only way many could receive the word of God. Today nearly everyone who wants one and can read has their own copy of the printed Scriptures, but this still is not a substitute for the spoken word. It has been reported that hearing the word of God spoken while reading along increases one's reading retention up to 50%.
Bible Analyzer v5.3 and later has some unique audio Bible capabilities that enhance the power of hearing the King James Bible while reading. One new and currently unique capability is Exact Verse Timing for multiple audio sets.
Exact Verse Timing refers to being able to play the audio of any individual verse whenever needed. That is, if a user wants to heart just one of the 31,102 verses in the King James Bible he can do so. This also makes it possible for the user to play the audio of verse lists in any order or sequence with any supported audio set!
Here is a list of key features of Bible Analyzer Exact Verse Timing,
- There are eight KJB Audio recordings indexed for verses. Four sets are completely free to download and the other four must be purchased from their publishers.
- The timing data allows precise verse playing and highlighting while reading.
- Individual verses or verse spans can be played on any reference in any panel by right-click.
- Verse lists and search results can be exported to MultiWindow and played along with verse highlighting.
- Playing can be stopped and started with any verse in MW.
- In MW verses can be played in full exported page or exported verse list. Highlighting and scrolling follows playing verse.
- When a recording for a verse or chapter does not exist the system's Text-To-Speech function is used.
- Multiple recordings can be indexed and easily switched or deleted.
The Bible Analyzer Timing Data Add-on does not include any audio files. It contains the timing data used to precisely determine the audio position of each verse in separately acquired audio files. To use the timing data, the user must also download at least one of the free or purchased sets below.
