ASK FATHER: Are those who must read the Liturgy of the Hours, obliged to read it aloud? Vocal recitation? | Fr. Z’s Blog

I was recently reading Quigley’s “The Divine Office: A Study of the Roman Breviary.” In it he mentions that vocal recitation was necessary to validly fulfill the obligation of reciting the office. Does this still hold for the Liturgy of the Hours? For example, is one who is bound to say the office bound to vocally recite, for example, the lessons at the office of readings?
