I am not part of Adobe, so what I say is only from reading the forums
>another way to access these fonts
Adobe does still sell standalone CS6 programs, see if what you want is there
>and if not, why not
Because everything new is now sold via the Cloud (if it is not included in the CS6 page above)

Hello Barkin Bob,
Typekit does require the Creative Cloud application to sync the fonts from your account to the desktop computer. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to sync desktop fonts on OS X 10.6, as you know, since the Creative Cloud software isn't available for that version. You would need to update your OS to a higher version that Creative Cloud supports.
I'm sorry that there isn't another option we can offer you at this time, but please let me know if you have any other questions. Best,
Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned, my machine is too old to upgrade the operating system! That said, I've just discovered I can access Typekit via the font menu in inDesign CC so although I can't synch fonts I can use them, so I'm a happy boy again!
now that is interesting. I wonder if it still works.
