On the Web
New Language Pages Added to LDS.org
During recent updates to LDS.org, 48 new language home pages were added to the site. The language pages link to all Church content available in that language.
The new pages can be found on LDS.org in the languages tab (top right corner of the home page), under “See Other Languages on LDS.org.” The pages will be updated as new or additional content becomes available in a language.
Book of Mormon in American Sign Language Now Available Online
The Book of Mormon in American Sign Language, previously available only on DVD, is now accessible on LDS.org.
Because the current version of LDS.org supports only text versions of the scriptures, the newly released videos will be housed for now on the “Classic” version of LDS.org. (A link to the Classic site can be found on the lower left side of the LDS.org home page.) From the home page of the Classic site, visitors can find the videos by going to Gospel Library, then Media Formats, and then American Sign Language (ASL).
New Format for Audio Scriptures Increases Accessibility
The Church has released an audio version of the LDS standard works for download on iTunes in audiobook or MP3 format.
Each volume of scripture—Book of Mormon, Old Testament, New Testament, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price—is available in audiobook format (called “enhanced audio content” on iTunes). MP3 files for individual chapters of scripture are also available for free download.
Streaming Device Offers New Opportunities
Any Church content found online—such as the Mormon Channel—can now be played on a television set using the Roku player, an entertainment streaming device that connects the Internet to a television.
In addition to the Mormon Channel, which is found on the Roku Channel store under the “Spiritual” category, viewers can access Mormon Messages, conference addresses, Church Educational System firesides, and many other materials.
