The device has a USB port that is designed to connect to a personal computer so books and audio files can be downloaded to the Victor Reader Stream's removable flash memory card and stored. It is also designed to digitally record voice notes. The device operates with advanced DAISY functions, and also offers navigation capabilities for all forms of audio books.
