My Words on Screen™ Online

If you have purchased a Premium Pack online which includes Words on Screen™ v2, you will also have received a Words on Screen™ v2 eSongbook in your

  • Log in to your online account and select My Words on Screen™ Online
  • Open the online streaming player
  • Click on All eSongbooks in the left hand menu and select your eSongbook

The eSongbook is where we bring together all of the digital resources available for your product.

You will find these under eSongbook Resources in the left hand menu of your eSongbook.

From there, you can choose to extract and save All Audio MP3s, All Lyrics PDFs and All Score PDFs. If you just want the MP3s, lyrics or music score for one song, then select the song in the library and use the buttons in the Song Extras area at the bottom of the screen.

You can access these files in the same way if you are using the S!ngchronize™ player that you have downloaded and installed from our website. Simply refresh your player and select your eSongbook.
