The audio Bible has made a wonderful addition to a number of different digital technologies including podcasting. This new application of digital audio technology to the Word of God is becoming ever popular on the internet. The audio bible online is fast becoming an integral part of the online Bible listening community who wants a readily available device for listening to the word of God, for participating in audio Bible studies, and for hearing audio Sermons. The King James audio Bible is just one of many versions of the Bible available in audio format. The audio Bible, mp3-player compatible, allows you to download the New Testament onto your mp3 player, allowing you to bring your Bible study with you wherever you go.
The term “podcast” refers to the combining of the two words iPod with broadcast. Podcasts can be listened to on any type of mp3 player, not just the iPod version player. A podcast is a digital media file that is sent out over the Internet in web syndication feeds that can then be subscribed to and downloaded onto your personal computer or an mp3 device. Podcasting offers an easy means of home computer users to create their own “radio shows,” which are then distributed over the Internet for people all over the world to listen to. Podcasting has also been used to distribute audio tours of historical tourist attractions, online educational lessons, and more.
Creating podcasts involves different types of digital technology. The first step is to record the content of the podcast, in this case the presentation of Bible verses, using digital equipment and saving it as an mp3 audio file. These audio files are then distributed out to the world over the Internet. The audio files, or feeds, are listed on a host website and show all of the different episodes that are available for you to listen to.
Because the creation of audio files are possible on computers, the actual production of audio Bibles is made much simpler through the use of this wonderful digital equipment. Computers are lightweight and highly transportable, which makes recording the Bible in the myriad of languages necessary in order for listeners around the world to understand what is being said much easier. No longer do Native language speakers have to be flown into a studio to record their pieces; instead, they can use computers in their home countries, and then send their audio files to the audio Bible sources, where they are compiled into the professional finished product available online.
