Victor Reader Stream Review

Updated: Nov 23, 2023

One of the best adaptive devices I've ever enjoyed using is the Victor Reader Stream for its multiple capabilities. Its primary feature as a recording device is to help dictate, plus it has many more features with its ability to connect to Wi-Fi. It helps to put down ideas or use them in class, especially for anyone visually impaired, like myself.

One of the things the Victor Reader can do with Wi-Fi is download books directly from the library. I love books, so I use Victor Reader daily to do just this. I think another exciting feature that the Victor Reader has is the ability to download and play podcasts, which is something I honestly never expected any recording device to be able to do. It can download materials using the Wi-Fi connection, too. You can also play music on different radio stations near Wi-Fi. Also, the quality and range of the audiobooks I download are excellent. I can download any book from the library for blind people.

The Victor reader comes with a charging cable and a small USB cable that is used primarily to transfer books that are mailed from the library for blind people directly onto the digital player. The Victor Reader's recording quality is also excellent because it picks up things that I don't even hear--and that's saying something because I have excellent hearing. The Victor Reader can even download updates over Wi-Fi, and with proper care, the Victor Reader can last up to seven years. At least, that's how long my first one lasted, so I use that as a baseline to judge its lifespan. Though I am a heavy user of it, somebody who uses it regularly can expect a Victory Reader to last for at least five years, but again, my first one lasted longer.

The overall quality is excellent, which is great for the blind and physically handicapped. I view various assistive technologies, such as Dragon, naturally speaking, and Kurzweil technology, to speed up and improve my writing, which the two technologies do excellently. However, my favorite piece of technology so far is the Victor Reader Stream. It's compact, user-friendly, and a beneficial technology. I recommend this device to anyone visually impaired or blind.
