JW Library Sign Language

JW Library Sign Language is an official app of Jehovah’s Witnesses. It downloads, organizes, and plays sign-language videos from jw.org.

Watch the Bible and other video publications in sign language. Download them to your mobile device so that you can watch them when you are not connected to the Internet. Enjoy the colorful images, simple navigation, and easy-to-use controls.

 

Simple Navigation

The Bible page lets you watch the individual books of the New World Translation that have been released. You can also watch individual verses that have not yet been released as part of the New World Translation but have been signed as part of other publications. The Library page displays other publications and movies that are available on jw.org.

 

Quickly Look Up Cited Scriptures

While you are watching a video publication, tap the Bible button. The video pauses while you navigate to the cited scripture and watch it. Go back to the Library page to resume watching the original video.

Easily Download Videos

The videos that you have not downloaded appear with dimmed colors. Tap a video to start downloading it from jw.org. Tap the Download All button to download all the videos on the page. Long press (tap and hold) a video to delete it from your device.

 

Manage Space

You can choose whether to download larger (higher-quality) or smaller (lower-quality) videos. If your device has an SD card slot, you can choose whether to download videos to your device or to the SD card.
