Listening to Audio Resources

First, tap on the Library icon.


Select the audio Bible you want to listen to from the 'Device' tab.


When you select an audio Bible from the Library, the Audio Player will open. To get started, you can navigate to any location in the Bible using the navigation menu at the top of the screen.


When the Verse Chooser is open, select any Bible book.


Next, select any number to choose a chapter from the Bible book you tapped on.


Finally, select any verse number. As soon as you tap on the number, the audio Bible will jump to that spot and begin to play. 


If you have the text of the Bible translation downloaded to the Library, you can read the verse and listen to the audio at the same time. 


The various features of the audio resource are also found in the Audio Player screen that is open now. Each feature has been circled with a number so you can learn the options that are available.
