I am completely new to Adobe software and I would like to know which apps do experts recommend to create professional typography. I thank you in advance for your time.

By typography do you mean
(a) putting text on a page
(b) designing a font?
If it's (a) and there is more text than a little, and it isn't a technical manual, Adobe InDesign.
I mean designing fonts.
thank you, I can't purchase that now. Is there anything close to this software in Adobe?
No, Adobe does not produce any such exceptionally-specialized software for font design and creation.
Hi there Dov, I am fully subscribed to adobe creative cloud and also wondered if there is a font / typeface building programme. Not only for vector based font building / control of alphabet, width, kerning, leading etc. But also an app that places letters into a usable and typeable typeface? Can you suggest one if so?
If you are asking if there is any font creation software included with the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, the answer is no!
If you read this thread and other similar ones, you will find that (1) Fontlab is probably the best product out there for WYSIWYG font creation and editing and (2) creating and modifying fonts is not simple, regardless of the tools you have available to you.
If you want to create special letters and use them occasionally, you can make them as vectors in Illustrator. This is in fact how most type designers start, combining the shapes into a fonts later after worrying about typographic consistency, kerning, ligatures, baselines, oversetting, accents, encoding, hints, file formats, font families and many other highly expert concepts. Few people do this, the market is far too small for Adobe to enter.
