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.

CNIB Library

Stratus4M and Stratus12M do work with the CNIB Library Direct to Player download.  Any new or existing Stratus players must be “programmed” by the CNIB Library themselves as they need to build the profile and activate the units.  Contact your local CNIB office for assistance.

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.

PortabilityBookshelf

All content is organized via the popular Victor Reader bookshelf categories. The bookshelves contain DAISY books, commercial audio books, music files, and text files.

Never lose your place

For every title, your Stratus will automatically resume reading where you left off, regardless of how many books you are reading.

Bookmarks

The bookmark key marks important points in any type of book, audio file, or computer document.

Go to page

Enter a page number using the Stratus12’s number pad and go directly to that page just like turning to a specific page in a printed book. Ideal for reference books, cook books or text books.
You can take and operate your Victor Reader Stratus anywhere, using its rechargeable battery and integrated carrying handle.

Keypad 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.

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.

Browse text and recorded DAISY books by chapter, section, subsection, phrase.
Navigate MP3 books and music, moving by folder, file, and specific time jumps.
Move through text files by sentence, paragraph, word, or even spell words.
