QUESTION

New York, NY

Regarding megillah reading, for those who cannot hear it in person, and don’t have Zoom access, would it be possible to listen to a recording of someone leining megillah?

ANSWER

Not a recording of the reading, since it has to be hearing the reading itself. They could, however, listen to live audio. See here, where it is quite clear that the pesak that it is considered a person’s voice is based on the immediacy of hearing it.
