So, when I’m trying find a bible verse online, I’ve been going to biblegateway.com for years. Just now, for the first time, I clicked one of their “listen to this passage” audio links.
Oh man. It’s bad.
The readers have British accents, and I’m not convinced they’re real. To make it worse, they adapt these overly stressed “radio voices.” The reading is melodramatic, and the voices themselves are distracting. I listen more to the ludicrous voices than to the message.
Now, that said, it seems like the have most, perhaps all, passages available through the audio files. That’s cool. Just wish they didn’t sound so bad.
