The General Conference web site says that it will be streamed live over the internet in 26 languages (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/ ... e?lang=eng); however, I don't see where I can find a list of the 26 languages.

Specifically, I need Tongan. I'm assuming it will be one of the languages, but I prefer not to make assumptions.

The broadcast page has a language dropdown tab at the top right that lists 17 languages. One of them is Faka=tonga. I guess if there are going to be 26 languages, they will add some more to the dropdown box.

Yes, I saw the drop-down. It looks like that's for the Women's Conference. I'm just looking for more reassurance that I can find Tongan come October 4. I guess it's just the project planner in me trying to validate as many assumptions as possible before the event. Maybe I'll just have to rely on faith.

I've just checked the Broadcast Schedule (Official Notice) and Tongan is one of the languages that will be available for all GC broadcasts!

Note that Tongan will be available for satellite broadcast, but it will not be available online.

Will closed captions also be available on any of the live streams or with downloadable mp4 files? We have a few people in our stake that are hearing impaired.

We had English closed captioning on during the General Women's Meeting at our stake center (streaming over the internet), so I assume it will be available for General Conference as well. I don't know what languages will be available.
