Emne: Re: Victor Reader Stream 2nd Generation

In addition to what you said about the slow download speed of the Victor stream 
second generation, I feel that the chip for the wireless receiver could be more 
sensitive. Another thing I believe is that the internet streams seem to go 
through a server controlled by Humanware for the most part. If there is a 
problem for some reason with there server, the machine locks up even though you 
are connected to your router. that being said, it seems to be the best all 
around device in it's class for the money!

Subject: Victor Reader Stream 2nd Generation


I just bought one of these units and would like to make comment on my purchase.

Firstly I think that the unit does a brilliant job for what it is in most 

The sound from the internal speaker is a little muffled however - having 
already heard a VR Stream - I was already prepared for this, a bit of an 
annoyance one might say so to overcome this I use a small BUniden hand-held 
amplified battery speaker I've had for years, cost me $25 about 7 years ago, 
pity the Stream doesn't have Bluetooth but I guess a product can't have 

Now I don't know whether this is my unit in particular but I have noticed that the 
downloading of data seems to be incredibly slow compared to other devices I have on my 
network, I used the "Check for Updates" function and - according to that - the 
firmware is up to date, well at least the data does get downloaded I guess.

There's a hell of a lot of functionality packed into the VR Stream box and a 
lot of this - such as the Internet Radio, podcasts and so forth - I won't 
bother using - given I already have better solutions for that sort of thing - 
but for those who don't the VR Stream provides a great entry level to the world 
of Internet Radio and Podcasting.

Getting online with the Vision Australia library was a snap so I downlaoded a 
couple of books.

Again, I have other Apps and so forth which I prefer to use myself but the 
Stream is convenient for reading, no doubt about that even though I read all my 
newspapers these days straight from the web site its good to know I have a 
reliable backup.
