OneClickdigital allows computer users to play books directly from your internet browser without the need to download the Media Manager software to your computer. Please realize this feature cannot send book files to your MP3 player!  Media Manager or one of the mobile apps are required to get a book to a portable device. 

Compatibility with these internet browsers has been tested.  Please realize that this feature requires Adobe Flash. Always update your Flash player when prompted. 

  • Windows computers--Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome
  • Mac computers--Safari, Firefox, Chrome
  • Chromebooks--Chrome.   Listen-in-browser is the only method compatible with this computers.

Why might you use this feature instead of the Media Manager software?

  • currently using a computer that you are not allowed to download software to, or do not want to download the software to (at work, staying with a friend, etc). 
  • computer is older and unable to use Media Manager, and all you want to do is play from the computer anyway (if you want to put books on an MP3 player and cannot use Media Manager, please use the manual download process).

Notes on this feature:

  • website cannot save your place in the book, you will need to keep track of what chapter you are on.
  • currently cannot automatically play the next chapter in the book, the next chapter must be clicked on to proceed!
