You can get started even faster by trying HumanWare's suggested playlists by region!
You can now use the power of popular online reference tools like Wikipedia and Wiktionary anywhere you go. Get a brief synopsis with the option to return to the book, or read the full article; or get a quick definition of the word you're on. And even use the same familiar DAISY navigation features to read the articles. You can even save articles into the new reference bookshelf for later reading offline.
How about rich media content from your favorite sources?
Imagine having the latest editions of your favorite newspapers and magazines in your hand every morning. Or dynamically browse books on Bookshare.org by title, author, category, most popular and more and download the book with a single key press. Do you enjoy Audible.com? The Stream plays their content, too.
It might be time, with low risk of change. That is because the well-known Victor Reader bookshelf navigation is still there, so you don't have to re-learn a new system. And although the latest Victor Reader Stream is smaller and lighter than the original Stream, the keypad is the same comfortable size and layout. There is still that long 15 hour battery life you've come to love, but now there is a louder speaker, improved voices and recording features, faster USB, a clock, and more in a sleek and ergonomic package weighing less than 4 ounces (110g).
Instead of asking Why, start using the power of WiFi with your Victor Reader Stream and enjoy the incredible new features the new software version 4.3 brings to you today, like internet radio, Wikipedia, and so much more. And best of all, new features will continue to come to you wirelessly in the future, making this a great investment for you now. It is time to ask Why not?
