How do I transfer Bookshare content onto the Victor Reader Stream?
The latest Victor Reader Stream includes built in Wifi allowing Bookshare users to log in, search, and download Bookshare content directly on the device itself. If you have this device click here for more information.
If you wish to use a computer to download and transfer material to a Victor Reader Stream, we recommend HumanWare's Companion Transfer tool which provides an intuitive screen reader-friendly user interface that makes it easy to transfer Bookshare books to the Victor Reader Stream and Classmate Reader. It's available for download at: http://www.humanware.com/en-canada/support/vr_stream_software
For those who prefer not to use the Companion software to transfer Bookshare content onto the Victor Reader, the SD card must be available to the computer as a removable drive. You can either: Remove the SD card from the device and insert it into an SD reader on your computer. Or keep the SD card in the device and connect the device to your computer with the supplied USB cable.
Once the contents of the SD card are visible in a folder window, you can proceed with the transfer.
The Victor Reader is compatible with Bookshare's DAISY Text and DAISY Audio formats. Download a desired book and extract your DAISY content to the $vrdtb folder. Each DAISY book, magazine, or newspaper should be saved in its own subfolder under the $vrdtb folder.
