MegaVoice is an incredible handheld device used to play Scripture recordings, especially in pre-literate societies.  Think "mp3 player" or "iPod", but this device has it's own unique design for use in pre-technical, pre-literate societies.

  • built in speaker - 30 people can listen at once
  • solar panel on back - no batteries required
  • durable heavy plastic construction
  • compression scheme permits encoding entire Bible on single unit
  • message is hard-coded and proprietary - cannot be hijacked for some unintended use
  • can be reprogrammed in the field - new material can be added as it becomes available
  • large buttons to jump back and forth to books, chapters, and paragraphs
  • cost effective

Actually "MegaVoice" is the name of the organization (MegaVoice International) that created these little units, and on their website they offer several different devices. The player pictured and described above is the favorite, the "Ambassador", but to most people, it's simply known as a MegaVoice.  Click for more details on the Ambassador.

In addition to the MegaVoice (Ambassador) players, the Scribe unit is needed to program or re-program players that have been distributed in the field.  The Scribe itself receives downloads from a laptop by USB cable.  The sound files must be compiled by MegaVoice engineers.  Click for more details on the Scribe.

The pages in this section describe procedures and resources developed to enhance the deployment and distribution of MegaVoices for the glory of God!
