New Generation Victor Reader Stream, version 4.2 upgrade

September 5, 2013 â?" HumanWare is pleased to announce the
latest software upgrade, version 4.2, for the popular new generation
Victor Reader Stream portable digital talking book player.

"The Victor Reader Stream is HumanWare's most popular product, and we are
pleased to offer our customers exciting and useful new capabilities with
this software upgrade," says Matthew Janusauskas, Technical Product
Manager for Victor Reader products. "We have added enriched media choices
for avid Stream users, from important sources like the National
Federation of the Blind and Bookshare®, as well as support for
Microsoft® Windows Media®."

NFB-NEWSLINE®, a service of the National Federation of the Blind, offers
327 national and local newspapers and 40 magazines to its more than
100,000 users. Stream owners can enter their account information directly
on the Stream and begin receiving their favorite newspapers and magazines
wirelessly without a PC or telephone. Stream automatically synchronizes
with NFB-NEWSLINE and maintains the same issues of publications that are
found on the server, which usually includes today's edition, yesterday's
edition and the previous Sunday edition for newspapers and the latest 2
editions for magazines.

Bookshare® has more than 200,000 books available for its 260,000
members, and the Stream will now be able to search the entire Bookshare
online library, provide wireless book downloads, and automatically unpack
and decrypt downloads using the member's account credentials.

"HumanWare has had a long and successful affiliation with the NFB and
with Bookshare, so we are happy that we can continue to have a close
relationship with these fine organizations with our products and their
content, to the benefit of our mutual customers" remarked Gilles Pepin,
CEO of HumanWare.

Version 4.2 is a free download for Stream customers, and can be installed
automatically over a wireless connection, downloaded from HumanWare's web
site or installed by using the free HumanWare Companion PC software

"We are thrilled that access to NFB-NEWSLINE® content is now integrated
into Victor Reader Stream, making it easier than ever for our subscribers
to download and read their favorite content with this groundbreaking
device," said Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of
the Blind. "We have a wonderful working relationship with HumanWare and
look forward to continuing to work with the company to make the
ever-expanding selection of NFB-NEWSLINE® content available through its

"The ability to search, download, and read books wirelessly on the Stream
will greatly improve the ease and reading experience for Bookshare

Stream users." added Betsy Beaumon, VP and General Manager of Global
