I believe there is a windows and mac browser plugin to facilitate printing within the application, though printing can be done from a pdf viewer.
We've just ordered this as a replacement for the reading application that was windows and mac only.
I'll update this and the k12 list with my findings as soon as it comes in and is installed.
