New updates for Stream and Brailliant

Victor Reader Stream and Brailliant updates available

September 14, 2016 -- HumanWare announces the immediate release of Stream version 4.7 and Brailliant version 2.2. The following are the feature enhancements which users will immediately see:

Victor Reader Stream Version 4.7

  • Support for subscribing and unsubscribing to NFB Newsline publications directly on the Stream (U.S. only). Now similar to subscribing to podcasts, you can subscribe to Newsline publications via your Stream’s online capability. In the past NFB Newsline users needed to handle the subscriptions using their computer’s internet browser. Today you can search for a news publication you want to always have on your Stream, subscribe to it, and you will always have the daily newspaper with your morning coffee.
  • Support for keeping specific NFB Newsline books (U.S. only). In addition to handling the subscriptions to Newsline content directly on the Stream, now you can save daily versions of a publication for later use, just by tapping the 3 key.
  • Ability to sync your time with an Internet time server. After you update and connect to your Wi-Fi, first set your time to the current time in your time zone. After this initial setting is done, your Stream will always keep its time, as it is constantly validating its time with a network time server. And if you are someone who prefers to have their clocks set 5 minutes fast, have no fear as you can continue doing so. After you set it 5 minutes fast, it will continue being synchronized at that specific time until you change it again.
