Recordings

With most languages, I have preferred the recorded voices that are at a normal talking speed. This, unfortunately, has caused problems for me with Hebrew, since it is written in an abjad. Simply seeing the word written, I often have only the vaguest idea of how it should be pronounced. Unfortunately, the speed of the recorded voice makes it very difficult to separate out each word and determine what the proper vocalization is. It appears to be very difficult to add a slower recorded voice on most languages, so is there another site that provides recordings of words or at least indicates vocalization in some way?

I agree with you that it's hard to understand what the voices are saying. I don't think there is another site that can help you separate the words and understand them.

Sometimes the voices are hard to understand, that's why I have mine turned off. I also have them turned off because I this little sister who is so loud. And it's kind of hard to listen and then write what they say. It's confusing.

True. I think it's just best to keep the voices off.

forgo.com would be a good place to start. It's my understanding it doesn't have masses of Hebrew, but it would be better than nothing :)

Thanks to you both. What an interesting little site. It is precisely what I needed, if the words are in there.
