R. Mansfield posted a topic in Module RequestsI don't normally post module requests in the public forum (we have our own section for Accordance employees). However, I thought it might make for good conversation to discuss some of the changes to the NRSV as described in the attached recently-released sampler of the NRSVue (updated edition). Note that I don't have any info about any upcoming module release for Accordance. I kind of assume we will eventually have it, but I don't know when. I believe ebook editions from Friendship Press will be available in November. I know nothing about print editions. Nevertheless, in reading through some of the upcoming changes, I thought most were good ideas. For instance, moving away from "leprosy" for צָרַעַת, since the disease described in the Bible is clearly not Hansen's disease, makes good sense (and has already been done in some translations such as the CSB). I wish I didn't have to say it, but knowing that Bible translations can be polarizing, please refrain from unnecessary pejorative statements and rhetoric regarding the update (or other translations). I just though this might be a good topic for civil discussion 🙂 07-24-2021-frp-nrsvuearc-sampler-web.pdf.pdf
deirdregood posted a topic in General Accordance TopicsSection Headings in NRSV digital version 5.0 should not be the DEFAULT position. Research by behavior psychologists shows that the default option has greater weight and influence on behavior and assessment than the opt-out option. Section titles are coercive: they appear as authoritative as the text and imprint on it in a way that deters careful study of biblical passages.
Could you please insert at least two empty lines between the chapters and also book names where new book starts? It's hard to navigate between two or three chapters by scrolling when all text is just one long long text. (I know I can tap on the Up/Down buttons, but I prefer scrolling by moving finger up or down, especially when the verses I'm interested in are not too far apart).
