Another convention and another special where we take a long look at a new product. This time, Greg Stilson of Humanware sits down with Joe to talk about the new Victor Reader Trek. It is everything you know about the Trekker line of products, along with everything you love about the Victor Reader Stream and a heck of a lot more rolled into a spiffy new device. In this special, you will hear about what led into the design of the Victor Reader Trek, what comes in the box, what voices it supports, a GPS navigation demonstration, discussions on availability and of course the price. Greg notes that the best way to secure your new Victor Reader Trek is to contact Humanware directly. We'll be speaking with Greg again soon about this device. So send along any questions not asked in this special to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide the answers in a later podcast.

I appreciate you doing and posting the podcast. However, I would have preferred fewer personal comments and repetitions of what the HumanWare rep said. I found Joe's style too chatty and rambling. Less of Joe and more of the rep would have made for a punchier, and shorter podcast.

I think that Joe and Greg were both great! Thank you both for an informative introduction! I'd like to have such a device for myself. I'm iPhone and Android user and both systems have a lot of apps for navigation. However, touch screens are useless in -30 Celsius (-22 F). I'm so upset about Heather retiring! It's my preferred voice for reading books in English. Luckily, I can still get her in Voice Dream Reader. Keep up your great work! Best, Svetlana
