Support for integration of an audio Bible into the SwordSearcher Bible panel is a feature in version 6.1 and later. With Bible audio support, you can play narrations of the Bible with familiar audio controls in the Bible panel. SwordSearcher does not include an audio Bible, but instead, supports "linking" MP3 Bible file sets available from various sources. To enable Bible audio in SwordSearcher, you must obtain the audio files and link them in SwordSearcher with the easy-to-use Configure Bible Audio window. Update April 2015: The recommendations below are obsolete because AMG no longer publishes their audio Bible. ---> Please go to the new audio Bible support thread for new recommendations, <--- or view the audio Bible support page on the SwordSearcher web site.

"Alexander Scourby" is a trademark of Litchfield Associates Ltd. Why use this specific audio Bible? SwordSearcher supports verse-level synchronized playback of the AMG KJV Bible audio files. This means that you can have the Bible panel highlight and scroll individual verses as the narration plays, and you can play verse lists aloud from a Bible search. Only the AMG Publishers product listed above supports this level of integration in SwordSearcher. What will I need to do? Once you purchase the CD-ROM set, you need to copy all of the files from each disc to your computer. Using Windows Explorer, create a folder on your hard drive and give it a name like "AMG Scourby MP3s" and copy all of the contents from each disc from the CD-ROM set to this folder. Follow the instructions listed below for setting up audio in SwordSearcher. Other audio Bible file sets you can use While we highly recommend the MP3 audio Bible above, SwordSearcher supports several other MP3 audio Bibles. In order to link an audio Bible in SwordSearcher, there must be one file per chapter of the Bible, in MP3, WMA, or WAV format. The following audio Bibles have been tested and are known to work in SwordSearcher: The Listener's Bible narrated by Max McLean (MP3 download). Available from http://www.listenersbible.com/ . Stephen Johnston's KJV MP3 Bible from Firefighters.org. (Go to their website, click KJV MP3 Bible, and then click the link at the top that says "download entire Bible." Bible.Is downloaded audio files. (I have only tested the KJV set. You need to get the complete set with both Testaments. Support for this audio set was added in SwordSearcher 7.0.) The above MP3 Bibles are known to work in SwordSearcher. Other file sets may also work, as long as they contain one chapter per file and the file names contain recognizable scripture references. Because SwordSearcher only plays the audio from the files, it does not matter what Bible version is used in the audio, and the audio can be played regardless of which Bible text is active or visible in SwordSearcher. StudyLamp Software LLC is not affiliated with any of the companies publishing the audio files mentioned above. Configuring SwordSearcher to integrate your MP3 Bible is easy to do. Go to File > Configure Bible Audio to get started. You can see step-by-step instructions in the program help file or right here.
