Spanish and Portuguese Scriptures in MP3 Format

by Larry Richman on October 16, 2007

Audio files of the Spanish and Portuguese scriptures are now available in MP3 format on the Church’s Web site at lds.org/audio. They are available as zip files for download. Within a few weeks, they will also be posted as individual MP3 files that can be played online.

The English audio files are also available at lds.org/audio and also linked to each chapter page on the scriptures site. (In English, you can click the word Listen at the top left of each chapter page to listen to the audio.) A future enhancement of the scriptures site will add links to the Spanish and Portuguese audio.

We plan to provide audio recordings of the scriptures in 28 more languages within the next few years.

FYI, the Book of Mormon is currently available in print in 106 languages and the triple combination in 49. The text of the scriptures is available online in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. Portuguese will be available about the end of 2007.

The audio file for Alma 10 at http://broadcast.lds.org/scriptures/BookOfMormon/BM_112_Alma_10_eng.mp3 isn’t working. It is returning and empty file (of zero bytes). This file is linked to from http://lds.org/mp3/display/0,18692,5297-41,00.html

Jacob, We are aware that the audio file for Alma 10 isn’t working and we’re trying to get a fix for it.

I’ve always been confused by this. Is there any reason why these 3 pages all have basically the same content, except that at any given time one or two are outdated?

http://lds.org/mp3/newarchive/

As of right now, the third is the most up-to-date, containing a link to the November 2007 Ensign. The second link only has up to the October Ensign, and the first (to which you linked in this post) only has up to the September Ensign. Can you explain why there are three separate pages and why they’re usually out-of-sync? Thanks in advance.
