[macvoiceover] Re: Victor reader stream and the mac

No there is no program to convert the audio files to something more useful. The Mac lacks a codec for the rather obscure file format that Humanware chose to use. You should contact Humanware.

The VictorReader Stream has some reported issues with mounting as a
drive on the Mac. I would suggest using a USB SD card reader which
will work and will be much faster anyway.

There is no way to convert the audio files that the Stream saves to
any format the Mac can read. This is a failing of the Stream itself
which should have an option to save files in a more standard format.
You should contact Humanware and ask that future software updates
permit saving in WAV, MP3 or AIFF formats.

The MacOS has file zipping and unzipping built in. To unzip a file
simply open it in the finder the unzipped files will expand into the
same directory as the .zip archive. To zip a file or directory select
that file in the Finder and then use the context menue (VO-shift-M)
and choose the compress option.
