[sword-devel] Audio Bibles

Hi, I e-mailed the Bible Time list about this, but I thought I would 
e-mail this list as well.
Is there support for Audio Bibles built into SWORD?  Are there any audio 
Bibles hosted already?  If there aren't any would it be ok to package 
some to include in the repos, assuming Audio integration could be 
included in most SWORD programs.
I am specifically working on an Ubuntu Touch Bible app, and would like 
to have an offline Audio Bible, as "Faith comes by hearing". It would be 
great to include this functionality.  Of course if crosswire wont host 
this, I suppose I might get a repo going somewhere.

The audio Bibles I have in mind are of course public domain, namely 
librivox.org.  Of course they contain an intro about librivox and are 
not in verse by verse sections.  There is also a public domain KJV bible 
read by firemen (though I can't remember where I found that one... 
something like firefighters.org... not sure though)

Anyhow thanks for any pointers you can give (especially specific header 
files if they exist)

May the LORD Jesus Christ continue to bless all of you for your precious
