    Help file audio support

    Thanks. I'll get that fixed. The links on this page do work:

    Glad that worked. I suppose it would be useful to have an "official" way to do this without making you open the registry editor (which I wouldn't recommend for most users!). I'll add this to the feature request list.

    Your settings are mostly stored in the registry under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SwordSearcher And there are some additional settings files in AppData, which you can go to by opening File Explorer and go to %AppData%\SwordSearcher The AppData files hold settings backups, audio link...

    Style and format cleaner?

    Sorry, there are no options other than what is presented in the configuration screen. The main reason the Cleaner was added was to remove the very kind of formatting you are wanting to keep, so I don't think it's going to work in your case.

    Any Thoughts about Way of Life Literature?

    Their Way of Life Encyclopedia, and their book Things Hard to be Understood. Just for clarity: the SwordSearcher WOL module is only available directly from Way of Life Literature.

    Implemented! Copy widget

    Just an update. I implemented this feature request in version 8.3. When you click any of the verse widgets, there is now a subtle visual cue (the icon shrinks as you click it) so you know it worked.

    Audio Bible support information (Update March 2019)

    With SwordSearcher 8.3, audio Bible support has been significantly expanded, with verse-level synchronization available for multiple mp3 audio Bibles, and the ability to link an unlimited number of audio Bibles at the same time. Note that SwordSearcher does not come with an audio Bible. You may...

    Most accurate audio Bible module for pronunciation?

    I still need to update that audio info page, maybe later today. I don't know if there is a definitive answer to your question. Having worked through these audio Bibles over the last few months, my opinion is that it's a toss-up between Scourby and McClean.
