Audio help for lectors today

Hit Play…

Lectors, please take note. Do you find yourself tripping over all the four-syllable Biblical names sprinkled throughout today’s First Reading? Not to worry. There’s an app for that dilemma. iMissal has an audio feature that you can play to help you with pronunciation. A couple run-throughs with this recording prepared me to be able to rattle off those names as if they were Steve, Richard, Louis and Suzanne. No problem lecturing today with the help of iMissal’s audio feature.

Lector-postNote that you need to be connected to the internet to operate the audio. Check out the screen shot from iMissal. See that little triangle “play” button at the bottom? That’s your key to help in handling pronunciations of quirky Old Testament names so you’ll sound like a pro (or a member of King Jehoram’s court).
