GoBible audio Reader

GoBible is an audio Bible. The Voyager version can include your own books or music.


[edit] Overview

This audio reader features Narration by Alexander Scourby or narrated by Charles Taylor, depending on the Bible Version. There are also versions that are dramatized with multiple actors.

A voyager version includes 3 GB of additional storage for your own books and has a AAA li-ion rechargeable battery. This version displays verses on the screen while the audio is playing. Note the dramatized Word of Promise (NKJV) as only 2 GB of additional storage due to the extra space needed.

There is also a GoBible traveler which is smaller and narrated by Charles Taylor. The traveler does not include story/topic indexes or verse level index. This hardware is available in a Catholic version and a Spanish version in addition to the standard KJV or NIV.
