General

Q:I’m eager to buy Digital Downloads.  What do I need to do first?

A:Install the FREE Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) on your computer/laptop or an ereader app on your tablet/iPad.

Whether you use your employer’s computer or your own laptop, you must have ADE installed to run your Digital Downloads.  It's secure and widely used by schools and businesses. Once you have it installed you can enter your Adobe ID and access your products.

Whether you use your employer’s tablet or iPad, or your own, you must have an ereader app such as Bluefire, Trade Bit, DL Reader, ebrary, or Readmill installed to run your Digital Downloads.  They are secure and widely used by schools and businesses.  Printing directly from a tablet/iPad is not currently an option.  If you want to print activity pages for your clients, install ADE on at least one computer or laptop.

Q:How do I install the FREE Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software?

A:Follow these steps:

  1. Create an Adobe ID
  2. Install Adobe Editions
  3. Authorize your device
This one-time installation and authorization process takes approximately three minutes.  Once the initial set-up is complete you can download products quickly from your Digital Download Library and access them from your computer/laptop.  This is the most time consuming step.

Click here for detailed installation instructions.

Q:Why do I need an Adobe ID?

A:There are two reasons:

1. To authorize your device.  After you install Adobe Digital Editions you will be prompted to authorize your computer/laptop.

2. To protect authors and customers.  This protection is called digital rights management or DRM.  It protects the fine work of our authors by restricting the sharing of copyrighted materials among users.

DRM also ensures that your LinguiSystems’ Digital Downloads are not locked on one computer but are instead assigned to you through an Adobe ID.  This allows you to access your materials on up to three devices.

Q:How do I create an Adobe ID?

A:Click here to create an Adobe ID.

This link takes you to the My Adobe Account page.  Click on the blue link that says Don't Have an Adobe ID? and follow the directions for creating it.  You only need one Adobe ID for all your devices.

Q:How do I authorize my computer/laptop?

A:With your Adobe ID.

If you are prompted to authorize your device during installation, simply enter the Adobe ID that you created.  If not, after installation, open ADE, click on Help and on Authorize Computer.  Enter your Adobe ID (your email and the password you created).  Click on Authorize.

Click here for detailed installation instructions.

Q:How do I authorize my iPad/tablet?
