Why can’t I listen to audio in all Bible translations
- YouVersion does not own the copyrights for any of the audio versions that we offer.
- It’s only through cooperative partnerships with generous Bible societies and publishers that we are able to use the many versions that we do.
- YouVersion does not actually record any of the audio you are listening to.
- The audio is not synthesized from the text, it is a recording of a human voice. In some cases, only the New Testament or certain books of a Bible version have been recorded.
- The organizations who provide YouVersion with the versions that we have available have demonstrated extraordinary grace and generosity in allowing us to bring them to a worldwide audience—completely free of charge. In fact, their choice to partner with us makes possible everything that we do. And we are profoundly grateful for each of these relationships.
