How does this product change your life?

The simplest and friendliest audio book player 

The Victor Reader Stratus continues the legacy of HumanWare’s 13-year history of developing simple, easy-to-use audio book players. The Victor Reader Stratus comes in a new look enclosure that is smaller and lighter on the outside yet smarter and better sounding on the inside. Unlike the previous generation, the Stratus plays multimedia books and music from CDs, SD cards and USB flash drives.


All Victor Reader Stratus models feature large, tactile, high-contrast keys, a built-in speaker and headphone jack, and self-voicing controls, making it simply the friendliest audio book player around.


You can take and operate your Victor Reader Stratus anywhere, using its rechargeable battery and integrated carrying handle.


Browse text and recorded DAISY books by chapter, section, subsection, phrase.

Navigate MP3 books and music, moving by folder, file, and specific time jumps.

Move through text files by sentence, paragraph, word, or even spell words.


All content is organized via the popular Victor Reader bookshelf categories. The bookshelves contain DAISY books, commercial audio books, music files, and text files.

Never lose your place

For every title, your Stratus will automatically resume reading where you left off, regardless of how many books you are reading.


The bookmark key marks important points in any type of book, audio file, or computer document.

Go to page

Enter a page number using the Stratus12’s number pad and go directly to that page just like turning to a specific page in a printed book. Ideal for reference books, cook books or text books.
