Re: using digital editions


hi Londa, according to ADE's webpage, XP sp3 is listed as a requirement, so
I don't understand why I'm having trouble. my PC has sufficient memory and
fixed disk space.
when I launch ADE, JAWS announces that the content area is in focus. I can
arrow down about 5-6 times, then JAWS locks up for a few seconds, I can then
arrow down once and JAWS locks up again. pressing the tab key, shift+tab, or
alt key, navigating thru the menus works just fine.

I had tried on a windows 7 64 bit PC and I have the same problems as with on

Yes, I have an Adobe account. after installing ADE and authorizing it, I was
set (I thought), but ran into this brick wall.

I wonder if the authorization applies to me or the computer?

Digital Editions should work quite well with JAWS. I have done it with books
that have DRM on them. I was using Windows 7, so I don't know if that makes
a difference or not. What is happening when you try and read the book. Also,
do you already have an account with Adobe? You need to create one if you
don't already have one for digital editions to work.

Subject: using digital editions

hi all, I'm taking a course that will use a cert guide/manual, and it's PDF
is only available with DRM. Since I can't open it with Adobe Reader, I'm
forced to use Adobe Digital Editions. After ADE was installed and
authorized, do I need to change any settings, because I'm having a very
difficult and frustrating time accessing the contents of the guide. I've had

the same difficult time with ADE 2.0 and 1.8. I'm using XP Pro with JAWS 14,

JAVA and Flash; all up to date..

I spoke to the publisher and explained I need the version that can be used
with Adobe Reader, but the agent I spoke to could not help. And stated that
the guide's PDF is only available with DRM. But the instructor for the
course says that he spoke to the same company and he was told that the PDF
that can be used with Reader is available. But I can't make any headway with

the publisher when I call and explain.

I emailed Freedom Scientific about it, but didn't get a response yet.

What should I do? What can I do? I'm not sure if the problem is DRM, Adobe
Digital Editions, or both. I also don't know of any alternative program that

can handle DRM, so suggestions and of where I can get it would be
