October General Conference Languages

Postby ellenburgoyne » Mon Oct 01, 2012 7:14 am

I have non-member friends coming from France Conference weekend. They will get nothing out of conference if I cannot get some language help. Is it possible to get French Subtitles on BYU-tv or on the church website during conference?

Otherwise can I get it in French with English Subtitles? This would be way more difficult for my family of course. The first option would be so great.

Anyone help me?

According to this article, conference will be available live in 16 languages (including French) at conference.lds.org; French is also an option for a Roku channel.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Thank you. Yes, I understand that, but I am looking for listening in English and having French Subtitles. Can anyone help me with that?

I think the best you can do at home is to have you watch separate streams. They watch French from conference.lds.org and you watch English from your usual source.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

If you are at home, I think RussellHltn is correct. You will need two separate streams. I am not aware of anything that would allow normal English viewing with French subtitles, or vice versa.

Most browsers support multiple windows. If your bandwidth is sufficient, I suppose you could watch English video and audio in one window and stream French audio in another, but I suspect the synchronization might be a problem.

And you would still have the human challenge of picking out the audio on which to concentrate.
