Bible Audio Pronunciations iPhone App Expands Library

Waldorf, Maryland – The Bible Audio Pronunciations iPhone application has expanded the size of its library from 1,000 words to 2,400. Ultimately, the app will contain every proper noun in the Bible, approximately 7,000 words. The app plays recordings of terms, names, and places that many people find difficult to pronounce. The app can be especially helpful with unfamiliar Biblical names such as Apharsathcite and Bescaspasmys.

“We wanted to give people an easy tool to raise their level of understanding and enjoyment from reading the Bible,” said Michael Vance, developer of the app. “It will speak out loud some of its most difficult words.”

The 2,400 audio clips were carefully researched and recorded to give listeners a clear answer to their pronunciation questions. Thanks to the portability of the iPhone and iPad devices, the Bible Audio Pronunciations app is designed to be used at home, church, or with others.
