Product Description


The Victor Reader Stratus is a digital talking book reader manufactured by HumanWare.

The Victor Reader Stratus from HumanWare is a digital talking book player capable of playing recorded DAISY audiobooks distributed on CD or DVD. It can also play commercial audio CDs and MP3 file CDs. With its large, high-contrast tactile keys, the use of headphones or its built-in speaker, and voice command announcements, the Victor Reader Stratus is accessible to people who are blind or have low vision. The base model of the Stratus4 has four arrows for easy navigation through your novels, magazines and newspapers. Students and professionals may opt for the Stratus12, a model with a 12-key numeric keypad that allows navigation to specific pages in highly structured books like reference volumes or textbooks. Please note that navigation for models with a numeric keypad is the same as for models with four arrows. These are replaced by keys 2, 4, 6 and 8. With its rechargeable battery and integrated handle, the Victor Reader Stratus is also portable.

The Victor Reader Stratus is a continuation of HumanWare's tradition of developing and designing digital audiobook readers that are both convenient and easy to use.
Victor Reader Stratus: Basic model with CD player only and 4 or 12 navigation keys. We are therefore talking about Stratus4 and Stratus12 replacing the VR ClassicX and ClassicX +
