Many years ago, I took Koine Greek I in college. I was not active in the usage of Koine Greek after the course and consequently forgot the language and rules.

Now I am retired and would like to have a method to have the individual Greek words in a Interlinear New Testament orally pronounced by clicking on them.

I have found a website that does this but is restricted to PC's.

Does anyone knows of a software program or website that will provide this information?

I would greatly appreciate if anyone can provide me with any information.

Accordance uses Apple's built-in speech synthesis (with your choice of voices and words-per-minute rate!) to provide fairly accurate pronunciation of both Greek and Hebrew.

Settings are in the Preferences under Speech, and you can speak a selection by pressing cmd-9 or going to the Amplify menu > Language > Speak.

Thanks, Dr. Kang for your suggestion. I'll give it a try.
