The simplest and
friendliest audio book player
Victor Reader Stratus continues the legacy of HumanWare’s 13-year
history of developing simple, easy-to-use audio book players. The Victor
Reader Stratus comes in a new look enclosure that is smaller and lighter
on the outside yet smarter and better sounding on the inside. Unlike the
previous generation, the Stratus plays multimedia books and music from
CDs, SD cards and USB flash drives.
All Victor Reader Stratus models feature large, tactile,
high-contrast keys, a built-in speaker and headphone jack, and
self-voicing controls, making it simply the friendliest audio book
You can take and operate your Victor Reader Stratus anywhere, using
its rechargeable battery and integrated carrying handle.
It's all about choice
Choose any of the Stratus4 models with its simple 4-arrow keypad to
easily navigate novels, magazines, and newspapers.
Students and professionals may prefer the Stratus12 models with its
telephone-style number pad for navigation to specific pages in highly
structured publications such as reference and text books.
For those who like the most simple operation possible, attaching the
optional keypad cover hides all but the most essential keys to simulate
a traditional cassette player.
In addition to playing CDs, the Stratus M model support
additional media sources, including USB flash memory and an SD card.
With the Stratus M's built-in text-to-speech capability, you can even
play computer text documents saved to these external media.
