Deaf Bible app

Postby alexmatheson » Mon Jul 29, 2019 7:40 pm

www.deafbiblesociety.com

Out of Arlington, TX...has free Deaf Bible apps in Apple and Android -the only ones out there. Don't know if "LDS-approved" translations. Let Special Curriculum & Translations depts. know. Hopefully, will inspire The Church to make one of their own. Might be helpful to ASL missionaries.

The Church currently only publishes their own edition of the Bible in 3 languages (English, Spanish, and Portuguese) – it relies on other companies to produce Bibles in other languages. Deaf Bible Society looks like a good resource for American Sign Language.

The Church has produced an American Sign Language edition of the Book of Mormon, and an impressive number of other resources in American Sign Language, compared to the number of resources it provides in other languages that have a similar number of speakers/users (according to Wikipedia, American Sign Language has an estimated 500,000 users; whereas a language like Swedish has 8.7 million native speakers, and Portuguese has 221 million).

Here's a link to Church materials in American Sign Language (which you're probably already aware of, but for anyone else):

That website has 25 "signed" languages Bibles online from various countries. Don't know if complete Bibles or New Testament only. Don't know if "LDS-approved" translations. Same group that does Deaf Bible app.

By the way, the Wikipedia article of 500,000 ASL users is from 1972 numbers.

Google Deaf Missions app. An ASL Bible translated from Greek/Hebrew/Aramaic -in 4 apps -Google Play, Apple, Amazon & ROKU. Has additional Religious content. It took nearly 40 years to develop from video to DVD to computer to streaming to apps. The apps are free.
