Mickelson Enhanced Strong's Greek / Hebrew Dictionaries included in "The Word"
October 5, 2008 11:45pm - Finished a week of working with Costas Stergiou (he lives in Greece). We integrated the Mickelson's Enhanced Strong's Greek and Hebrew Dictionaries into "theWord" Bible study software. These have become the default dictionaries for Costas' product. Updated PlowShare Online to these latest revisions.
Also updated PlowShare Online to use Hilkiah N.T. 0.13 and Hilkiah O.T. 0.02. I am well pleased with the progress. Also exported the Hiliah N.T. into Text-to-Speech and can now listen to it with acceptable audio fidelity via MP3 for "proof-listening." -JKMickelson
