of the ways in which you can read:

  • On dedicated devices like the
    Victor Stream or Stratus or similar devices;
  • On a Windows computer using
    FSReader included with Jaws, or free programs like DDReader or Amis;
  • On smart phones using the free
    EasyReader app or the paid app, Voice Dream Reader.
