Karen, maybe you know all you need to about the Milestone and the Book
Currier, but Brian Hartgen's page at:

http://www.hartgen.org/portable.html
I did post some info here some time ago about the latest firmware
upgrade for the Milestone which appears to make it a better DAISY
player than it used to be.

contains a good summary of these players.

No doubt Brian will be reviewing the Victor Stream soon, but in the
meantime it does strike me that for some the stream's very small size
will be attractive.  On the features front it can also speed up DAISY
books like many of the CD players can.  It should also support Audible
books in the near future through a firmware upgrade.

If all this wasn't enough there is also now the Vi-Player joining the
fray, which Calibre seem to have some association with.  This will
apparantly be demonstrated in the reading room at Sight

Cheers,Village.

hi all

i've been reading with interest the information on the lis about the
new
victor stream and find myself very confused.  What is the advantage
over
this new piece of equipment compared to the book courier or the
milestone?
