Overview

The simplest and friendliest audio book player 

The 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.

I never thought reading a book could be so simple

Accessibility

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 player around.

Portability

You can take and operate your Victor Reader Stratus anywhere, using its rechargeable battery and integrated carrying handle.

It's all about choice

Keypad Choice

Choose any of the Stratus4 models with its simple 4-arrow keypad to easily navigate novels, magazines, and newspapers.

It's all about choice

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.

Multimedia Choice

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.
