Hi. I would like to say that the Victor reader stream was instrumental for me to receive my Masters degree in Musicology from the University of Colorado Boulder in the spring of 2013. The ability to download from NLS and Bookshare was an integral part of how I completed a thesis on early Rhythm and Blues music. Through the Heather TTS voice at 450+ words a minute, I absorbed the material fast and with great accuracy. I was also able to record meetings with my committee members which helped me refine my thesis topic and narrowed the scope of research. I still have those recordings thanks to the vast amount of space that the stream gives to a compressed recording format. Lastly, I was able to take the tracks that I was analyzing by ear and put them on my stream to carry around with me. So, to summarize, my Stream was an invaluable resource for a difficult degree to obtain and made things so much easier in a fast-paced academic environment.
