Victor Reader Stream

Earlier this year I was able to get the Victor Reader Stream which is a digital reader. The Victor Reader Stream is able to play audio MP3 books and books in text format such as Daisy, HTML or TXT. Additionally, the really great thing about the Victor Reader Stream is it plays the new digital audio books from the National Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS). NLS for many years has provided audio books for the blind and physically handicapped community. These books have been available on audio cassettes. But now it is really great these books are available as digital downloads from a library patron website. So far I've downloaded a dozen books and read them. The great thing about the NLS books is that the library uses professional readers to record the books. Also in the meantime I still scan a large number of books. I convert these books into audio MP3 books using special software called TextAloud which converts text into spoken audio. So with my Victor Reader Stream I know I'm able to read many books. I might mention it is more difficult squeeze in some book reading time now that I have the opportunity to spend many more of my hours taking care of AJ. So books and AJ are takings
up almost all of my spare time.
