According to the Rogachaver Gaon (19th century Europe), each individual should read this verse in one breath, since the Baal Koreh cannot fulfill others' requirement of "one breath." 19) Some have the custom that four of the phrases in which God's name is hidden are read on a higher key and emphasized.They are: levado avsa Vashti hamalka (), he, vechol hanashim yitnu (), yavo hamelech vahaman hayom (5:4), and ze aynenu shoveh li ().With the advance of MP3 audio digitization and the accessibility of the internet, the distribution of the many Torah shiurim recorded on audio tapes has declined.In an effort to preserve and disseminate this otherwise lost information, we have b'ezras Hashem undertaken to convert a number of torah audio tape libraries into MP3 digital format.Of course, it is forbidden to speak during the reading.17) Post facto, if a word or sentence is not heard, it may be read from a printed book or said by heart.
The custom is also to include 500 ish in the one breath, if possible.
1) Men, women, and children (who have reached the age of education ― age 6) are required to hear the Megillah.
2) The Megillah is so important that even Torah study is deferred to hear the reading.
9) We say three blessings before reading: If a woman reads the Megillah, she should say as the first blessing, "Lishmo'ah Mikrah Megillah." The blessings should be said standing, even when reading for an individual.
If one accidentally omitted the blessings, he has still fulfilled his obligation to hear Megillah.
20) When the reader reaches the verse Nad'da shnas hamelech ("and the King's sleep was interrupted" ― 6:1), he should raise his voice, since this forms the essence of the miracle.
