Victor Stream 4.8 Update Adds Daisy Online, NFB-Newsline Improvements

A promised update to the Victor Stream 2nd Generation software has been released by Humanware which will be of most use to users of the Daisy Online service. Version 4.8 supports dynamic menus in Daisy Online, a service used by organizations to distribute books which is popular in many countries but not the U.S.
