Love to Read? Grab a Victor Reader Stream and Go!

This fall, the LightHouse will offer training on using the Victor Reader Stream for adults 55 and over. The Victor Reader Stream is a portable, handheld device that provides the user with access to downloadable books, including those from National Library Service (NLS); audio files (music, podcasts, etc.) and the ability to record messages. Participants who successfully complete this class will have automatic access to a Victor Reader Stream for personal use. Says instructor Leah Gardner, “If you’re an avid reader and want to increase your access to audio and text materials, this comprehensive class will insure you do so efficiently and effectively.”

  1. I already have my own victor stream and haven’t had the time yet to fully utilize it. Since I am in Milwaukee, WI is there any portion of class offered on the internet. If not, could you advise me of any other helpful, friendly resources that might be able to help me “get going” with my victor stream?
    Thanks in advance, and LUV your site!

    1. Thank you for writing Onder.

      You are certainly right. The vocational rehabilitation office in your state should be able to help you with this. You are welcome to call me and discuss other options. My number is 415 694-7363.

  3. P.S. Rose,

    In addition to local programs, you might try contacting Hadley School for the Blind at 1-800-323-4238 or the Carroll Center in Newton,MA (617) 969-6200. They offer on-line courses.
