VoiceTeachâ€™s maintenance subscription program
When you purchase a new copy or an upgrade of one of our products, your purchase price will include a one-year maintenance subscription. During that year, you will be entitled to download and use any new versions of that product which are released, free of charge. At the end of the year, you will have the option to renew your subscription for an additional year. If you choose not to renew your subscription, you will be able to continue to use the versions which were released prior to your maintenance subscription expiration, but you will not be licensed to use future versions of the product.
Will the software I buy stop working after the year is up?
NO!!! You will be licensed to use the versions which were released prior to your maintenance subscription expiration, forever.
After using a couple of editions, I found out that you had a manual on the disc. Unfortunately, I found this out after installing the product. In the electronic manual you give very good instructions on installing and also on how to upgrade and save your user files. I would appreciate it if you would have some type of direction on the new version that would direct you to open the PDF file on how to install or upgrade before I (average user) would just click away and install the product.
