How To: Use Audio Bibles

There are two ways to listen to an audio Bible on BibleGateway.com. You can listen through the Audio Bibles page and you can listen to the Bible while you read the Bible text.

1. To listen through the Audio Bibles page, click the Read the Bible icon and click Audio Bibles:

2. To listen to an audio Bible and read the Bible text at the same time, open a Bible through the search on the home page, e.g. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+1&version=NIV Click on the audio icon in the upper left corner to open up the same Audio Player window:

If the audio icon is not present, audio is not available for that particular Bible or reading plan. You can see a list of available audio Bibles here.
