No, digital editions are streamed to the reader in much the same way as web pages are viewed. Macromedia Flash is required, although this is already installed on over 95% of computers. If you do not already have Macromedia Flash, it is available to download for free. YUDU digital editions are designed to be universally available. Corporate networks frequently block users from downloading specialist software and YUDU avoids this problem.
