“The Truth & Life Dramatized audio Bible is entirely faithful to the text of the Holy Scriptures. The manner in which the text is performed, beautifully
assists the listener in understanding the meaning of the divinely inspired words within their context. The background music and sound effects helps the
listener to imagine the setting of each particular text of the Holy Bible. I am happy to give my wholehearted endorsement to the audio New Testament.”

--Cardinal Raymond L. Burke,
Perfect of the Apostolic Signature of the Holy See

“This is the way Scripture is supposed to sound. Revealing and passionate performances from world class actors, a lyrical translation, and sound effects
that put you in the middle of the action. Whether you’ve read the Bible a hundred times or are making the first contact, this is an experience you will
not forget and one you will want to repeat often.”

--Laura Ingraham,
Radio Talk Show Host, New York Times Bestselling Author

“We learn by hearing as well as reading. Those who desire to become true disciples of Jesus will want to learn from His words in every way. For anyone
interested in beginning or continuing their adventure of faith, I highly recommend this faithful and powerful presentation of the Word of God.”

--The Most Reverend Charles Chaput,
Archbishop of Philadelphia, PA

Accessibility Comments: 

the app is almost totally accessible. There are a few unlabeled buttons but it should be easy to determine their function. While reading the program schedule, the buttons for next day and previous day are not labeled. There is also another unlabeled button, which I believe allows you to purchase the Truth and Life Audio Bible.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
