Hi folks. Just dropping in to remind everyone about tomorrow night's chat. I'll be conducting a training session with the victor reader stream from HumanWare. The message from Pat Price is below. Please invite anyone you think might be interested. Thanks.



Event:  VR Stream Hands On Training

Trainer:  Shane Christenson, Texas Email:  drummershane@xxxxxxxxxx

Setting up the VR Stream isn't rocket science but it is much easier when you

have a knowledgeable and patient technology trainer lead you step by step

through the process. That is just what will happen next Tuesday when Shane

provides all the information you need to insert the SD card, attach cables,

set up folders and then download books to the player.

All you need to bring to the meeting is your Stream, the SD card, the USB

cable that accompanied the player, and a willingness to follow directions.

Shane realizes our computer skills vary. His goal is simply to help each of

us learn how to use this great little device independently so we can enjoy

downloading books.

Date:  Tuesday, October 2, 2007.

Time:  5:30 p.m. Pacific, 6:30 p.m. Mountain, 7:30 p.m. Central, 8:30 p.m.

Eastern and outside the USA Wednesday GMT  00:30
