A slower version (ahem, with a much more humble voice) would be this recording here I made myself of the Hebrew alphabet. Each letter with the sound that it represents.

The Hebrew Alphabet has 22 letters, written from right to left. Letters are usually written right on (notebook) line, some letters break this rule and go below the lines, these are: ף – ך – ץ – ן, whlie the Jod/Yod is written way above the line, just like the Latin apostrophe (י).
