    Will setting up the in your pocket favorites work the same if you do it 
online on the web site instead of doing it through the phone as described 
below?  In other words can I set up my in your pocket favorites list from 
the web site and then access them with the 2nd gen stream?

>                NFB-NEWSLINE subscribers who also own the HumanWare Victor

> newspapers from NFB-NEWSLINE on to their Victor Reader Stream wirelessly. 
> Here are a few things to keep in mind when you decide to access 
> NFB-NEWSLINE on the Victor Reader Stream. Please remember that you will be 
> using the NFB-NEWSLINE in Your Pocket service when downloading your 
> newspapers on to your device. This means that the files will be downloaded 
> in text format, which the Victor Stream will read using the HumanWare 
> screen-reader software that is already on the device. It will not use one 
> of the NFB-NEWSLINE voices to read the newspapers.
> Second thing to keep in mind is that since the Victor Stream Second
