- Direct Verse Jump, a revolutionary new method to open the exact verse you need in mere seconds (note that it will not work on PC and iPad due to the limitations in the Amazon’s Kindle software for PC and iPad)
- two other ways to navigate between books and chapters: (i) using a hyperlinked table of contents; and (ii) pressing the joystick right or left to move between books of the Bible. Once you learn all of the three navigation methods, you will be able to open any verse in your Kindle Bible as fast as (or even faster than) in your paper copy
- easy to determine where you are in the Bible
- as any Kindle book, the French Bible is searchable; however, when you first install the file please wait for the Kindle to index the whole Bible (most of the time about 10 minutes; however, sometimes up to 8-10 hours). The file is large and it takes a long time to index. For this reason, the DVJ navigation method will be available only after the book has been indexed
Direct Verse Jump: new navigation method using the search functionality:
In this version, all you need to do is type an abbreviated book name (see the table of contents for the complete list), then period, then chapter number, period again, and then verse number and finally press “find” twice (you need not wait for the Kindle to display the search results) and you will be looking at that particular verse in seconds. If you just need to open the first verse of any chapter then the verse number is not necessary. Do not forget periods and use only the abbreviations that are listed in the table of contents.
The DVJ abbreviations are standard for almost all OSNOVA Bible publications and as the result, they are English-based. If you want French-based abbreviations please email OSNOVA at the email provided below.
For example, if you wish to select chapter 3 of Genesis, you would:1. type the standard abbreviation for Genesis (see the table of contents for a complete list), then period, and finally number “3” in other words: ge.32. click “find” (or just enter if you have Kindle 3) twice and you are there.
For John 3:16, you type “jn.3.16” and double click “find” (or just “enter” if you have a Kindle 3).
Note that you should put the chapter number even for books that have only one chapter. For example, the Epistle from Jude verse 5 would translate to “jud.1.5” and a double click.
Please note that this edition is not TTS(text-to-speech)-friendly due to the way TTS works on the Kindle.
