Create MP4 Videos from a HearThis or SAB Scripture Audio Project

Bible Karaoke is a Windows desktop program that produces a read-along MP4 video of Paratext Scripture text and audio from HearThis or Scripture App Builder. The resulting video can be customized in a few different ways and used for literacy and Scripture engagement purposes. Please try it out and give us feedback so that we can make it better for others in the future.
