Hi Lappy! happy

Thank you very much for your instructions re: KJ's problem as I experienced the same and only followed what you have enumerated there and VOILA! I was able to download all the additional files for the little reader.

But I encountered 2 more problems  confused 1. I couldn't download the powerpoint files. I'm not so familiar with .ppsx. and 2.  I couldn't open the pdf file after downloading them.
I'm confindent you'll be able to help me with these.  Thank you so much. My kid is 1.5y.o. and she's enjoying little reader so much!   

God bless. happy

Thanks for asking that question.  Here's little more to clear things up with the downloads:

FOR THE POWERPOINT SLIDESHOW FILES
The free downloads do not need Little Reader to play.  These PowerPoint files are stand alone files that you can play for your babies even without Little Reader.

To download:
Go to the FILE DOWNLOADS area and click on POWERPOINT SLIDESHOWS (.ppsx) - You will then see a list of PowerPoint files that you can download.  After choosing what you like, click on the DOWNLOAD button and the download will begin.

To play the files:
You will need PowerPoint Viewer 2007 to open these files.  If you don't have the program yet, you can download it for free by clicking here.  Download and install the PowerPoint viewer first before you open the files.

FOR THE FLASH CARD PRINTOUTS - PDF FILES
The flash card printouts are there for you to open, print out, and show to your child as hard copy flash cards.   

To download:
Go to the FILE DOWNLOADS area and click on PRINTED FLASH CARDS (.pdf) - You will then see a list of Flash Card Printout files that you can download.  After choosing what you like, click on the DOWNLOAD button and the download will begin.

To open the files:
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these files.  If you don't have the program yet, you can download it by clicking here.  Download and install the Adobe Acrobat Reader first before you open the files.

I hope that made thigns a little clearer for everyone.  yes  If you still have any problems, do let me know.

Lappy

I did download and installed the powerpoint viewer, but I still can't open the ppsx files. Any idea?
Also, how do I open .cat files? I used to know this, but haven't used the program for more than a  year and I can't recall, I'm afraid:-(

You need Little Reader to open .cat files.

Thanks. I can't find it at the moment, for my whole computer has been reinstalled. But I'll try to find it on a disc. If I fail, can I get Little reader again?

Hi Li Ling!

The files you are trying to open are NOT PowerPoint slideshows, therefore you won't need the PowerPoint viewers.

The files you are trying to open are PDF files (if you look at the file extensions, they are .pdf)

My instructions for opening PDF files still apply in this case. smile I'm reposting them in case you missed them:

FOR THE FLASH CARD PRINTOUTS - PDF FILES
The flash card printouts are there for you to open, print out, and show to your child as hard copy flash cards.   

To download:
Go to the FILE DOWNLOADS area and click on PRINTED FLASH CARDS (.pdf) - You will then see a list of Flash Card Printout files that you can download.  After choosing what you like, click on the DOWNLOAD button and the download will begin.

To open the files:
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these files.  If you don't have the program yet, you can download it by clicking here.  Download and install the Adobe Acrobat Reader first before you open the files.

Hi Newdad87!

May I ask which specific file you're trying to download? smile If you let me know which file you're trying to download (just give me a link and the title of the file) I might be able to PM you with a download link so you can save. On the other hand, you may also try right-clicking on the button links and choosing "Save link as..."

Please note that the PowerPoint slideshows are in .ppsx format - this means they can be played, but not edited. Wink

Hi ayrabella, which particular "Downloads" link or button are you referring to?

If you meant the "Free Format Downloads" item in the Forum's top navigation bar, please go to our Library's new home at http://library.brillkids.com yes
