Student teacher software

Am considering buying Acrobat Pro 9 to solve (at a price) several problems connected with PDF. Searching for best price among trusted suppliers the Student or Teacher packages are attractive, but "require proof" of an academic use.

How rigously are these applied? I would qualify over village charities and publishing, but the last thing I want is to spend money on software which cannot be registered.

An engineer at work is doing an OU course and applied and got Windows 7 Ultimate for £60 or so he said. They will check the details of your course etc. thoroughly.

It's all here acrobat conditions now it's up to you. I didn't go any further but the very cheap student deals from microsoft require a university email address or similar, for instance full office proffessional for £38 Microsoft Office for students. My son uses it and it is permitted to use a Laptop and Desktop for the primary user. Perhaps someone can reccommend a free PDF that will suit your needs?

Thank you all for your contributions.

They confirm what I had meanwhile learned for myself. The licence is clearly dependant on proof of elligibility - full stop.

bugle: I have a current thread running about suitable freebies, but didn't want to confuse matters with a link to the theme of freebie Acrobat Pro look-a-likes. Will try harder in that sphere!

Have a look at this, PDF X-change

I use the free version only to read PDFs so I don't know about the pro version. Looks like you can trial it.

Commonsense has prevailed!

I have downloaded 'PDF995' which seems to be capable of almost anything. Blinded by all its expertise I muddled my way through and my problem was quickly solved.

Thanks for all the help.

If your school does not qualify for a discount on software then you can try this company: Phoenix software. You are qualified for a discount on software as long as you have a valid email address from a UK based educational institution.
