HumanWare Launches Victor Reader Stream CD Edition
Longueuil, Quebec, March 4, 2010 - HumanWare is
pleased to announce a new model of its popular
Victor Reader Stream portable DAISY, MP3 player
and voice recorder. Victor Reader Stream CD
Edition combines the worldwide renowned VR Stream
and a special CD player accessory.
Stream CD Edition is perfect for people who do
not have a personal computer. It is the easiest
way to transfer a DAISY book on CD onto one
single, portable audio playback device without the use of a computer.
"We have heard from many people who like the
portability of the Victor Reader Stream but who
do not use computers", says Gerry Chevalier,
Victor Reader Product Manager at HumanWare.
"These are customers who receive DAISY CD books
in the mail from their library. They tell us they
would like to be able to transfer their CD book
to the Stream because the Stream would be an
ideal player when they are travelling or on the
go. However, they also tell us they do not have
or want to use a computer. With the Stream CD
Edition we are now pleased to offer them a solution."
* Ideal for readers who listen to DAISY CD books and do not use a
* Easy to use. Just attach the CD drive to
the Stream, load the CD book, and press a single
button to copy it to the Stream
* A short Getting Started audio book explains
the steps and plays automatically when you power on the Stream CD Edition.
* The Stream CD Edition has the full feature
set of the standard Stream so if users want to go
beyond just listening to their DAISY CD books
they can enjoy other types of books and music and
even use the voice recorder. All documentation
and tutorials are supplied on the SD card.
What's in the package?
* One VR Stream with all the usual
accessories (rechargeable battery & charger, ear
buds, USB cables, documentation CD and a 2Gb SD card)
* One VR Stream CD player Accessory
especially designed to be used with the Stream
The CD player accessory is also available for
purchase by existing Stream users who may not
have a computer and are relying on others to
transfer their CD DAISY books. Only the CD player
supplied by HumanWare should be used as other CD
drives have been found not to be electrically
compatible and can damage the Stream.
