I like reading this module on my iPad, but the sound files play separately, not allowing one to read along in the text. This is a hindrance to the value of the sound. I would request that the sound files play like they do in Pratico's and Mounce's grammars (play while the text is still displayed).

 

Thanks

This was also requested by email, but would involve considerable programming, and there are other high priority issues to deal with before we can get to that.

The difference between Pratico-Van Pelt and Mounce is that they only include audio 'clips' which play until they are finished. With the Hebrew Primer they are long audio 'segments' (for lack of a better term) and require audio controls to play / stop. We didn't have the ability to implement custom controls on iOS that would keep the text view visible. It's something we'd like to support, but at this point I can't say where it stands in the iOS development roadmap given the other higher priority items we're trying to tackle there.

Thank you Helen and Rick. I can appreciate the demands on the iOS development team. This is one "minor" feature that affects a limited number of users on one tool (that I know of). Thanks for explaining the issue.
