E-book Information and Instructions
INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS ON E-BOOKS
Please note: We do not accept returns or make exchanges on E-Books.
WHAT TO BUY: E-PUB, MOBI, OR PDF WITH LINKS
In most cases, the ePub can be used on iPads, Nooks, and personal computers, whereas Mobi or prc files can be used on Kindles and personal computers. Please consult the company that manufactured the reading device to determine which version to purchase. Important: Not all e-readers can access audio and video files embedded in an enhanced e-book. Please consult with the manufacturer of the e-reader before purchasing an e-book that has audio or video files.
"Pdf files with links" are enhanced e-books that have audio and video files embedded in the text that can be fully accessed on a computer. Thus, if you don't have an e-reader, or if your e-reader does not allow you to access audio or video files, the pdf version is the most appropriate format. The links embedded in the text of the pdf will take you to the Barcelona server, where the audio or video file that you click is immediately played. The text remains on the screen, allowing you to read while you hear or see the example.
DOWNLOADING TO E-READERS
Barcelona Publishers is unable to instruct customers on how to use their e-readers, either to download ebooks from the website, or to open them on the e-reader. Please read the instruction manual for your e-reader, or contact the manufacturer to learn how to download e-books. Here is a link that gives very clear instructions on how to download ebooks on various e-readers: http://ebooksbridge.com/www/ebb/index.php?main_page=page&id=23
DOWNLOADING TO COMPUTERS
If you do not have an e-book reader, you can use your computer to open, save, and read whichever version you prefer (either an ePub or Mobi). Important note: Audio and video files embedded in an epub or Mobi book cannot be heard or viewed on a PC or MAC.
To download to your PC or MAC, you must first download the correct software. Specifically:
To open and save the ePub version on your computer, you have to first download the free software from Adobe Digital Editions.
For PCs, go to: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/
For Macs, go to: http://helpx.adobe.com/digital-editions/kb/install-digital-editions-mac-os.html
To open and save the Mobi version on your computer, download the Kindle software.
For PCs, go to: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000423913&tag=mh0a9-21&hvadid=485702919&ref=pd_sl_18hri711in_b
For Macs, go to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_mac_ln_ar?docId=1000464931
When you go to download the book, be sure to save the download where you can find it easily. If the file downloads automatically without providing a save option, it may have gone directly to your “Downloads” folder, so look there before assuming that the download was unsuccessful.
