If you read this thread, you'll see the best information the community can come up with to answer this question. I doubt you will ever see a definitive statement from the Church as to the reasons for this long-standing policy.

The MP3 files are available on lds.org

I don't know why it is being said that the ASL videos do not contain audio. True, the video of the entire session does not contain audio, however, as of today, the videos of individual talks do contain the audio.

I downloaded the mp4 asl videos and converted to mp3. I now have found that the mp3 files are available online (as of right now, who knows how long they will stay there). Open the individual ASL video. In the URL change ase to eng and mp4 to mp3. I did not find any other languages that worked.

Not publishing a link to a file is not a security measure (not a good one anyway). I've posted this here so that if publishing these files was an oversight, the church can correct it. If it was not an oversight, then forum members can access the files and enjoy the audio of the most recent Priesthood session of conference.

Okay, but only in English. Portuguese for example is this link.

Works for Portuguese as well. Go to the English page and follow my instructions above only change ase to por.

Duetsch is deu; the trick is to go to the language page and find the 3 letter abbreviation for the audio files that are posted. Then use that abbreviation and the instructions above.

I wonder if the deaf community complained about no sound in the ASL files. Maybe the sound helps, along with the sign language. Even if they can't hear it well enough to understand without sign language. Well whatever reason, I'm glad the sound is back. I load conference talks into my iPod. I guess I'll load the videos now.

In case it hasn't already been mentioned, another benefit of audio with the ASL feed is for those who are learning ASL to help with Church work.

Priesthood Session now in normal video format

I dont know how many people have noticed but the latest conference web page now has both the Audio and Video (ASL and non-ASL) of the Priesthood Session.

I can only assume someone has listened to the comments in various threads on the issue.

Enjoy :-)

Good catch -- thanks for letting us know!

I would note that in addition to the April 2009 conference mentioned above, the October 2008 Priesthood Session also has posted the Audio and Video (but no earlier conferences have Priesthood Session audio/video at this point).

I've just spotted the April 2008 Priesthood session online as well. Only the music was omitted, as they did not start to put the music files up even generally until last October.
