The pointed text of the Hebrew Bible is available from certain websites,
including: (this site is all in Hebrew) (this site is in French, also has a beta
version of a cantillated text of Genesis, which sort of works but is not

These can probably be viewed on a Mac at least with MS Internet
Explorer. As for importing it into Nisus, I think there is a way to do
it, but better ask Nisus about that.

I was about to write that you could get the cantillated text only as
part of an expensive software package. But I see that much of it is on
offer for 10 Swiss francs at
