HumanWare introduced its first compact DAISY player. Compaired with the Milestone 311 the Victor Reader Stream is large (4.6 x 2.6 x 0.9 inch) and weights 180 gram, which is too much for a portable device. On the other side the Victor Reader stream includes much more features than the Milestone. Most interesting is the possibility to read text files with the included text-to-speech software.

As the newest member of the family of Victor Reader digital talking book players, the Stream offers the same powerful and simple to use user interface made popular by the Victor Reader Classic+ and Wave players used by thousands worldwide. The Victor Reader Stream can play various electronic book formats, including DAISY, Bookshare, text, wav, MP3 and OGG Vorbis audio files. As well, the ability to play the popular commercial books from

The player also provides integrated text-to-speech for reading books in text format, such as those from Bookshare. It uses a removable SD flash memory card to store books, music as well as electronic text, and can even record voice notes.

"The VR Stream benefits from our many years of expertise learned through developing and marketing tens of thousands of our Victor Reader digital talking book players all over the world," says Gerry Chevalier, Product Manager. "No other DAISY player has offered so much in such a small device."

The Stream offers the most advanced DAISY functions, as well as navigation capabilities for all kinds of books, from textbooks to fiction. Students will definitely appreciate Victor Reader Stream for quickly and effectively consulting their school books, making voice notes or recording their teacher during class. This tool is indispensable for people who are required to use reference books as a regular part of their job.

"This new player was designed to meet the needs of the increasing number of on-the-go blind and low vision students and professionals," said Gerry Chevalier. "Its small size and flexible SD card storage allow our customers to take their entire book and music library with them anywhere, anytime."

In The US the Victor Reader Stream is priced at $329. In European countries the price of the Victor Reader Stream is remarkable higher.
