Text Release Bundles

If you have Paratext 8 or later installed and have a local copy of the Paratext project you plan to record, you’re all set. Otherwise, you will need to create a Glyssen project based on the Scripture data contained in a Text Release Bundle. The two most common ways to get a bundle that Glyssen can open are:

  • Download an existing bundle from the Digital Bible Library.
  • Create a new DBL Text Bundle using an ‘advanced’ command in Paratext 7.6 Beta 4. (Later released versions of Paratext 8 do not contain this feature.)

When using Paratext to prepare for making the Text Release Bundle (as the source for audio publishing via Glyssen), ensure that:

  1. The Scripture books to be recorded have been consultant checked.
  2. You have used the Quotation Marks Checklist to review if quote marks are present where they should be in the text.
  3. The Basic Checks for Chapter/Verse Numbers, Markers, and Quotations all pass.
