    Default Useful hebrew language site

    SAFFA, which in Hebrew means language, is a very useful software for learning biblical as well as modern Hebrew. It has text to speech functionality, gives grammatical information, and has a parallel Hebrew/English Old Testament using the American Standard Translation. A demo can be downloaded at www.hebrewworks.com/index.htm

    Default Nice

    Thanks a lot.

    It is very nice. Some good ideas. The voice sounds more like a computer than a human. It would be great to have a human voice that you could adjust spead, etc. for all the vocab flashcards in BW.

    However, thanks for the site...always interested in good resources.

    I have a Yahoo Group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pedagogytechnology/

    dedicated to discussing issues of Pedagogy and Technology. This is a good resources for a group like that.

    Thanks,

    Default Computer voice vs. human voice

    I agree with the computer voice assessment. Personally I use SAFFA along with a 'human voice'. I have the full Tanakh (Hebrew Old Testament) spoken by a native Israeli on 4 CD's in MP3 format. The pronounciation is perfect! And, because the tracks are digitized you can listen one verse at a time, one chapter at a time, or whatever. The website if you are interested is http://www.hebrewworld.com/SpeakingBible.html It's the only source of its kind. There is another spoken Hebrew Bible but it is not by an Israeli but by someone who learned Hebrew. Check it out. It's worth your time. With WinXP you can listen via the Media Player,minimize the Media Player and read the bible text with SAFFA. When you want to pause and look the grammatical form of a word in SAFFA, simply use the pause function of your Media Player. In a short time you'll be working the two softwares almost without thinking.

    Shalom.

    Here's a site for mp3's of the Hebrew Scriptures. They've recently begun updating it with chapter selections.

    Default A better Hebrew Audio Resource

    Shalom,

    I have found two resources that help you learn Sephardic pronunciation of the Tanakh:

    1. Audio Scriptures International: http://audioscripture.com/audio/0123-01/OT/OT.htm
    2. Danny Ben-Gigi's Hebrew World: http://www.hebrewworld.com/SpeakingBible.html
    Used in conjunction with BibleWorks, these are excellent resources.

    Hatslahah.
