What is BibleCourier?
The BibleCourier is a small electronic text reading device that allows you to read the Bible anywhere and at anytime you desire without being connected to a computer.
The BibleCourier weighs just four ounces including a pair of double A (AA) alkaline batteries which will power the unit for up to 40 hours of continuous reading.
The BibleCourier is about the size of a standard audio cassette and about one inch thick. The BibleCourier is very portable and small enough to easily fit in a shirt pocket.
The BibleCourier memory contains the full text of the sixty six books of the Old and New Testament in a digital format. There is also an on board users guide to help you learn how to use the twelve buttons on the front of the BibleCourier. These buttons are arranged much like a telephone keypad with a raised dot above the five key to help you locate the proper key for swiftly navigating through the books, chapters and verses of your talking Bible. Each key will also announce its functions when held down until two beeps are heard.
The BibleCourier uses the DoubleTalk speech synthesizer computer chip to generate a clear synthetic voice to read the text of the Bible to you. There are five voices to select from and you can adjust the speed and volume of the reading as well as the pitch of the selected voice. You listen through a set of stereo earbuds which are provided with the Bible or you may use an external amplified speaker (not included) for group or personal listening.
The BibleCourier has many other features including the ability to set virtually unlimited bookmarks within the text, the ability to have unclear words spelled, and the capability to power search among the books, chapters, and verses of the Bible. A footnote feature may be enabled which will allow any related notes to be read in a higher pitch at the appropriate place in the text (not all Bible versions will contain footnotes). There is even a sleep timer which can be set to turn off the reading after a specified amount of time in order to conserve battery power.
