I noticed someone mentioned there has, in the past, been much discussion on the forum about audio files. He said it as though the idea was not positively received. Is there a general aversion on the forum to making audio files of Aramaic?

It's simply a heck of a lot of work.

The actual recording part is quick, but the exporting, collating, and packaging of such files take four or five times as long.

If you want to hear the Aramaic NT in the Peshitta's estrangela script read aloud by a native speaker, this is the only place I know it can be heard online, I've talked to Qasha Athanasis about getting CD copies and he said he is getting them prepared.

I inquired because I purchased Thackston's Grammar, and I am struggling to get off the ground with it without being able to hear it. Does anyone know of any existing resources that would compliment this Grammar?
I do not know of anything like that, but, those audio recordings that Thirdwoe linked to, from Qasha Athanasis is a good place to hear what the Aramaic words sound like, by a native speaker. I believe that both Thackston and Qasha Athanasis are using the same source text, the Aramaic of the Peshitta.
