Adobe Reader offers the ability to save the text within a
PDF. When you have a PDF file open, select “File” and then “Save as text.” The
information will be converted to a .txt file format which can then be loaded on the
NowBible. Note that some PDFs are protected and do not offer the option of being
converted to text. The same concept applies to Word documents. Within Word,
select “File,” “Save As,” and change “Save as type” to “Plain Text.” Then, select
“Windows (Default).”

BATTERY SAVING TIPS
The following tips will help prolong your battery life:
1. Adjust the backlight setting by going to Tools from the Main Menu.
Tap “Backlight” and adjust the amount of time before the backlight
automatically turns off. For example, setting the backlight to 30
seconds ensures that the screen will be turned off automatically after
30 seconds of inactivity. This is an excellent feature if you plan to
listen to the NowBible only, and not read from the screen.
2. Adjust the on/off setting by going to Tools from the Main Menu. Tap
“On/Off” to set the device to be turned off manually or after a
specified number of minutes if the NowBible is not in use. For
example, setting the “Auto off” to 15 means that the device will
automatically turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity. NOTE: The unit
will still turn off if audio narration is turned on. Only screen taps
and/or button presses will reset the internal timer.
3. Adjust the contrast by going to Tools from the Main Menu. Tap
“Contrast” and use the arrows to adjust the brightness of the screen.
As a general rule, the lower the contrast setting, the longer the battery
will last.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is on the Backup Disc?
The backup disc is a recovery disc that contains all of the software that is
pre-installed on the NowBible. This disc is not required for the transfer of
files to the NowBible (such as MP3 Music, MP4 Video, Photos, or
eBooks). For additional information on the backup disc, please refer to
page 58 of the User Manual.
Do I need to install anything from the Backup Disc before using the
NowBible?
No, all NowBible software is pre-installed and the unit works right out of
the box. The backup disc will only be necessary if the unit becomes
damaged or if a problem develops with the software.
What Operating System does the NowBible use?
The NowBible uses custom software that is proprietary. It is independent
from any Palm or Windows based software that is common in other
PDA’s and electronic devices. The PDA Contacts section is also not
capable of importing address books used by any other devices or
programs.
60
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (CONT.)
Can I download other software and programs that I own to the
NowBible?
Since all NowBible programs use our own custom software, other
programs that are designed for Windows or Mac platforms will not be
compatible with the NowBible. Only custom software programs designed
specifically for the NowBible will be compatible. Any available software
updates or add-on
purchases would be available from
www.nowbible.com.
What are MP3's?
MP3 is a digital audio format that occupies only 1/10 of the memory of
audio CD’s. This file format can be played by certain digital audio
players, including the NowBible Color. Other forms of digital audio
include WMA and WAV files, of which some types can also be played on
the NowBible. The NowBible is compatible with any type of MP3 audio
file, including those downloaded from the internet or converted from an
audio CD. Note that songs downloaded from Apple/iTunes are in an M4P
format and therefore cannot be loaded onto the NowBible.
What are MP4's?
MP4 files, also known as MPEG-4, store digital audio and digital video
streams. The NowBible uses MP4 Video files that have been converted to
the .AVI extension, using the MP4 Converter Tool software that comes
pre-loaded on the device. All video types, even those that are currently
.AVI, must be converted using the MP4 Converter Tool software in order
to be viewed on the NowBible.
61
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (CONT.)
What are eBooks and where can I find them?
An eBook, or electronic book, forms the digital equivalent of a
conventional printed book. The NowBible is compatible with plain text
eBook files only, which is a .TXT file extension. Other common types of
eBook files include PDF and Word Documents, both of which can be
saved as plain text files for use on the NowBible Color. There are
thousands of websites that offer eBooks, many of which are free. A
Google or Yahoo search for “eBook” will reveal many such websites.
What is the internal memory capacity of the NowBible?
The NowBible Color features 4GB internal memory which is equal to
4,096 MB (or 1 Billion bits).
How much of the internal memory is consumed by the pre-installed
NowBible software?
In general, the NowBible software will take up approximately 2 GB of
space, leaving approximately 2 GB of free space remaining. This memory
can be utilized for adding MP3, MP4, Photo, and eBook files.
Can I use my own headphones or earphones?
Yes. In fact, a good pair of noise canceling headphones/earphones will
further enhance the NowBible listening experience.
62
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (CONT.)
Will I ever have to replace the battery?
Yes. The shelf life of the battery is for 500 full charge cycles. If product
performance begins to suffer from poor battery life, a replacement could
fix the problem. The NowBible is compatible with almost all brands of
lithium-ion batteries which are available at your local electronics
retailer. The battery and Micro-SD card compartment can be opened at
the back of the unit. Follow the steps on page 56 of the User Manual to
replace the battery.
Do you offer accessories for the NowBible such as protective cases,
arm bands, and car chargers?
Yes. Accessories for the NowBible can be found on our website,
www.nowbible.com, as they become available.
Can I download more than one bible translation onto my NowBible?
At this time, the NowBible is limited to one translation per unit. The
NowBible’s 4GB capacity could potentially be upgraded to have an
additional translation in the future. Potential upgrades would be available
for purchase as a download from www.nowbible.com, or on CD-Rom
from NowBible retail outlets.
63
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (CONT.)
When will there be software updates available?
As they become available, software updates can be found on the “Software
Updates” tab of our website. Software updates would include bug fixes
and enhancements to the existing software, and may also be utilized by the
NowBible Technical Support team.
What is the maximum file size on photos?
The maximum file size per photo is approximately 500 KB (1600 x 1200).
You may be able to load photos larger than 500 KB onto your NowBible,
but you may not be able to view them in full screen mode.
