Tyepkit does not render properly in IE 8. My client is on a government network which requires the use of  IE 8. I submitted an email to support@typekit.com on July 5th; only to receive an autoresponder that the ENTIRE support Team is on vacation from July 1-5th. I'm glad we the people, can pay for all of Adobe's team to take off an American holiday when most of their support comes from India?

I submitted another email on the 8th; no response and today is the 9th. As I am under a deadline, support is NOT RESPONDING at all. I called the Abobe support number 1-800-642-3623 The wait time stated 4-6 minutes. After waiting on hold for over 2 hours the call was NEVER Answered. I am NOW attempting a second time; which now I am told the wait time will be over 1 hour.

What has happened to Adobe customer service? This is an abhorrent way to treat any paying customer. I'm not used to being treated like I live in 3rd world country. I have an Adobe Cloud subscription and upgraded my account on AdobeTypekit. Since Typekit has abandoned any reasonable timeframe on emails and has no support number/live operator I am going to cancel this horrible account.

Does anyone know of a much better solution for fonts other than Typekit? I hope everyone thinks twice before supporting this company, as customer service ceases to exist.

After the long wait via phone, I was told Typekit was not supported by Adobe Support, that it is owned by another company and the email is the only support for that product. Really?

I'm very sorry for the trouble and delay here. I've replied to your email with some instructions that may help solve this issue with IE8:

http://blog.typekit.com/2013/03/14/the-dangers-of-cross-browser-testing-with-ie9s-browser-modes/

http://blog.typekit.com/2011/06/27/new-from-typekit-variation-specific-font-family-names-in-ie-6-8/

If this doesn't solve the issue, I'll need to gather some more information about the network, etc. Please see my email and we'll take it from there.

Again, sorry for the delay.

-Ben

I contacted support@typekit last night, and didn't receive so much as an automated "we got your question" reply.  18 hours, later, no response.  Just sent my second follow-up email.  All I want to do is UPGRADE and SPEND MORE MONEY.  At this point, I am looking for an alternative too.  This has seriously dented my confidence in Adobe (which has generally been good -- that's why this is so weird.)
