<table cellspacing=3D"0" cellpadding=3D"0" border=3D"0" ><tr><td valign=3D"=
top" style=3D"font: inherit;"><DIV>Audio bibles are generally &lt;1Gb, whic=
h&nbsp;may&nbsp;prevent collecting all known versions into a portable media=
 device,&nbsp;but the size&nbsp;does not prevent keeping a Bible&nbsp;in an=
 Iphone or pretty much any player you pay more than 10 bucks for.&nbsp; I'v=
e been loading whole audio bibles into my phones for about 3-4 years now.&n=
bsp;(well I loaded an audio bible as MP3 into a microSD chip that gets inse=
rted into phones as I have the need,) Putting a software front end on this =
would be an outstanding achievement.</DIV>
<DIV>The version I currently use (because it is much more listenable than a=
ny version I've come across so far) is the Twentieth Century New Testament =
read by J.A. Carter. </DIV>

<DIV>For this feature to provide much if any additional usability over simp=
le MP3 files in a list,&nbsp;It needs to be able to pick specific verses/ v=
erse ranges (not just chapters.) I'm very capable and willing to produce th=
e individual verses from larger files into any format needed.&nbsp;but prog=
ramming in a time code for each&nbsp;verse would more likely be the appropr=
iate way to skin this apple.&nbsp;That is, the OSIS code for an audio verse=
 should have a filename component, a 'verse start MM:SS.TTT (minutes, secon=
ds, milliseconds)&nbsp; argument, and a verse end argument.&nbsp; </DIV>
<DIV>If defining timecodes inside large mp3 files is too cumbersome, I'm wi=
lling to separate the files of a version into verses. I've done initial wor=
k for separating the files above into verses. (However, I stopped, because =
the value of verse separated files is limited without advanced player contr=
ols to take advantage of them.)&nbsp;With proper setup, I&nbsp;feel that tr=
imming verses out of the works above for a new testament would take me abou=
t a week per gospel sized book. (so about 10 weeks for the NT, and about 3 =
months for a Bible). </DIV>
<DIV>However, I can only work on English texts, because verse separation cl=
early requires native language ability. </DIV>
