The Victor Reader really helps me with taking notes and learning my material in my classes. Since that I have glaucoma, and my eyes get tired easily; I can just sit back and listen to my notes and take in information without straining my eyes. I can also listen to my books and enjoy them.

The Victor Reader Stream enabled me to read textbooks and retain valuable information that earned me an honor's degree in Business Administration. Now I'm employed by a nonprofit organization that helps visually impaired or blind people to live independently!

Being an avid reader, I was devastated when I lost my ability to read due to macular degeneration. Then I discovered Victor Reader and my reading world opened up again. Thanks for a great product.

    I am a totally blind professional jazz pianist and jazz piano instructor who has been a VERY SATISFIED owner of the HumanWare Maestro and Trekker GPS system since December, 2006 and May, 2007 respectively. Once I purchased the Trekker, I have used it on many occasions in my travels, both on foot and in automobiles. Trekker has been invaluable in guiding my wife Debii and me to unfamiliar destinations.

    In September, 2007, I was invited to perform with a drummer and bassist in the Summer Jazz in the Park concert Series in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Trekker gave me a guided tour through downtown Milwaukee as Debii and I enjoyed the great weather and she took many pictures of the architectural landmarks both old and new.

    In June, 2009, I purchased the Victor Reader Stream, and I can't express in words adequately how many hours of enjoyment and benefit I have gained by owning one. When I placed the order, the customer representative with whom I spoke told me that once I owned one, I would not want to be without it. She was 100% right!

    The Stream has given me access to books that were previously either unavailable or only available in Braille. I remember my grade school and high school years when Braille, talking books on vinyl records, reel to reel tape and then cassettes were the available formats. Now, thanks to your magnificent Victor Reader Stream, the computer and the Internet, I can easily download titles and transfer them to my Stream and read at my leisure anywhere!

    The Stream has also been invaluable to me as an instructor of jazz piano. Sometimes during lessons, I use recordings by great jazz pianists to illustrate techniques or stylistic concepts. Thanks to your latest Stream update, I can now easily search for and play any track that I have stored in the $VRMusic folder! Such convenience and flexibility was unheard of when I attended Dartmouth College from 1967 through 1971 and the University of New Hampshire from 1974 to 1978.

    Finally, I want to commend all of you for your sincere, dedicated and diligent work as you develop products that are truly user friendly and perform exactly as promised. Furthermore, your philosophy of giving users access to FREE, DOWNLOADABLE UPDATES TO THE ASSOCIATED SOFTWARE demonstrates your commitment to assuring that owners of your products can always keep them up to date and performing optimally!

    Keep doing your marvelous and wonderful work that allows people such as me to attain greater independence, education and enjoyment by owning your products.

  4. I have quite a few players but I would like to highlight 2 of them from your company. I use the first generation Stream which is wonderful to use for many of my reading needs.
    I have quite a few players but I would like to highlight 2 of them from your company. I use the first generation Stream which is wonderful to use for many of my reading needs. It’s like always having someone around to read print books to me and I simply love it’s ease of use. For my recent Birthday my husband got me The Stratus. I absolutely love using it since I can read tons of books on a 32 gig card not to mention being able to put memory sticks into my Stratus but also keep the 32 gig card in my Stratus if I choose to flip to one of my books on the flash card from the memory stick. The Stratus’s sound quality is fabulous as well. I wish that these wonderful electronic servants had been out when I tried to go to college since my study time would have been far more rewarding then they were back then.

  7. Congratulations on the new Stream software. I thought the NFB-Newsline was cool. This latest release with the Internet is amazing. I love that it was so intuitive to figure out. I didn't read my notes and just figured it out easily.

  8. The internet radio is very good. It plays .m3u .pls .asx .aac and more. It plays the I-heart stations that very few players will play. If you're familiar with the OO-tunes app on Ios it uses the OO-tunes data base of stations. You can search the data base
    The internet radio is very good. It plays .m3u .pls .asx .aac and more. It plays the I-heart stations that very few players will play. If you're familiar with the OO-tunes app on Ios it uses the OO-tunes data base of stations. You can search the data base and find thousands of stations. Highly recomended!

  9. What is so neat is I can go to my local library which has a public wireless network, and just use it to either download and read Bookshare titles, or search for internet radio stations.

  10. No more looking for "listen live" links on complicated websites. Your internet radio bookshelf is perfect, easy to use, logical and makes pushbutton internet radio a reality. It's much easier to use than any radio app for the iPhone.
