Audio Content

AUDIO CONTENT ON THE PLAYERS THAT YOU ORDER

  • for orders from China: By default, there is no content on the players when they ship. However, the manufacturer will load the players with the content that you provide him with or give you the password to the players so that you can upload the content to the players yourself. 
  • for orders from distributors: Each distributor is free to handle this as they wish. If you provide the distributor with the content, they can load the players with your content or give you the password so that you can load the units yourself.

 

GOAL TO LICENSE FREE CONTENT (THE CHRISTIAN COMMONS / UNLOCKED CONTENT)

The audio Bible without useful audio content (audio files) is useless just as much as the audio content is useless without the content. With the Omega Audio Bible, we are making a step of progress towards solving the hardware side, but it’s important that we as a Christian community focus even more so on the audio content side. 

Today, one of the big “bottle necks” in making the Gospel available to Unreached People Groups and Unengaged People Groups is the lack of freely available audio Bible translations. In some cases, audio Bible does not exist (or only small parts) and in other cases, the audio Bible files are not released by the owner of the copyrights. 

It’s critical that the Christian community commits to working on license free audio Bible content or Bible content that is published under the Christian commons. To learn more about the Christian commons, read Tim Jore’s book: “The Christian Commons”: https://unfoldingword.org/tcc/

On this website, we plan to gather as many links as possible to other sites where you can find resources to audio files for Christian missions (i.e. Bible recordings in heart languages, oral Bible Stories, etc.), as well resources to help you with oral methodologies for discipling programs.

Note: if you know of (or are part of) an organization that you think should be included in this list, then please let us know at info@OmegaAudioBible.com
