You can now attach PDF text alongside the MP3 audio of any or all sermons! PDF text can be used for printable notes or even full transcripts of sermons. There is no extra charge for this feature! And all PDFs are available to site visitors free of charge as well!
Broadcasters: To attach a PDF text document with your sermon, simply go to any sermon page and click on the "Upload Media" link (the same link you use to upload your MP3 audio for a sermon). You will find in that window a new field for a PDF file. You can optionally upload the PDF at the same time as your MP3, or at a later time.
Here are some areas that have been updated to accommodate the new PDF feature:
Search results. All search results now show a small PDF icon when applicable. You can also select the PDF media type in the filter subset for any search result to show only those sermons with PDF text attached.
Newest PDFs. The Newest Media Added section has been reformatted to now optionally show all newly-added PDF texts to the site.
Broadcaster homepages. All broadcaster homepages and broadcaster sermon listings now allow for faster "jumping" to PDF-only sermons for your convenience. And of course the sermon detail page has been modified now to include a button to access the PDF text!
Statistics. Broadcasters can view interesting statistics on their uploaded PDFs including the top-accessed PDFs and running counters of individual and total PDFs available from your church.
Much more.. There are many other improvements that have been made throughout the site to make the PDF-experience on SermonAudio just as enjoyable as the MP3-experience!
Here are some suggestions to get you started with PDFs!
SermonAudio Transcription & Translation Service. We make it possible to take any audio sermon, have it professionally transcribed by a real human and then automatically translate it into multiple foreign languages for maximum outreach and international potential. It's economical and easy-to-use!
Create-Your-Own PDFs! Today there are a number of tools available that will help you easily create PDF files from virtually any word processor. Google is a great place to begin your search!
We hope you will enjoy this important new addition to our service offerings as we strive to provide the most powerful tool for today's Bible-believing churches!
Our congregation has had our pastorās sermons transcribed for years now (since 2001, I think). And up until this week we have always had to āhostā them on another (non-SermonAudio) webserver. And if you look (clc.sermonaudio.com), you'll see that our transcribed sermons are consistently our top downloaded sermons.
Weāre thrilled that now we can have transcripts of our pastorās sermons posted directly on SermonAudio. We've moved a few dozen over already and hope to do more soon.
We are a small church and SermonAudio has been a tremendous boost to our evangelism. We could NEVER reach as many with audio OR text as we can with this valuable service.
We have our sermons transcribed by Audioposting ā the company recommended for this by SermonAudio. The transcripts they produce are attractive, accurate, and they usually have them back to us in about 24 hours after we order them. They also offer a price which is a great bargain.
Thanks again, SermonAudio, for helping our little church reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ!!
