>> NFB-NEWSLINE on the Victor Reader Stream Second Generation                 NFB-NEWSLINE subscribers who also own the HumanWare Victor Reader Stream Second Generation can now download all their favorite 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 Generation has a wireless receiver, you no longer need to connect your device to a computer. However, you have to have a wireless router in your house or wherever you are using the device so that you can access the internet and download the newspapers directly onto your device from the NFB-NEWSLINE servers. Before you can start setting up the NFB-NEWSLINE service on your Victor Stream Second Generation, you must set-up your Victor Stream to receive information from your wireless router. Please also keep in mind that you must create your NFB-NEWSLINE in Your Pocket Favorites List before these publications can get downloaded onto your Victor Stream. This list is different from your NFB-NEWSLINE Telephone favorites list. See instructions below on how to do this. Setting up your NFB-NEWSLINE in Your Pocket Favorites List over the Telephone: 1.       Call the NFB-NEWSLINE telephone service at 1-888-882-1629. Log-in with your NFB-NEWSLINE six digit User ID number and your four digit security code. 2.       Press the zero key from the main menu for the Subscribers’ Control Panel. 3.       Press the nine key to go to the next set of options in the menu and then press the three key to manage all your NFB-NEWSLINE favorites. 4.       Press the number one key to set up your NFB-NEWSLINE in Your Pocket Favorites List and follow the prompts. Setting up your NFB-Newsline account on the Victor Stream: 1.       Turn on your Victor Stream with the round power button on the top left side of the device. 2.       Press the round Wireless button on the top in the front of the device. Wait to hear the device to say, “Connected to Wi-Fi”. 3.       Press the number seven key twice on the keypad and wait to hear the “Online Services” message. 4.       Press either the number eight or number two key to hear “Add NFB-NEWSLINE Service”. 5.       Press the Pound Key, and follow the prompts. 6.       First you will be asked to enter your NFB-NEWSLINE six digit User identification code. Enter it, and then press the pound key to confirm. 7.       Then you will hear the device say, “Enter Security Code.” Enter your four digit Security code and press pound again. 8.       Now you will hear “Please Wait”, and a few seconds later you should hear the message “NFB-NEWSLINE on.” Now your device is registered to receive NFB-NEWSLINE content. 9.       Press the star key to get out of this menu and to go back to the online bookshelf. 10.   Press the number one key to cycle through the different items until you get to NFB-NEWSLINE. Press the number four key to hear “synchronize NFB-NEWSLINE Content”. Press the pound key and wait for it to finish downloading your favorite newspapers onto your device. VICTOR READER STREAM Once you’ve finished downloading your favorite publication content, you can begin reading your newspapers and magazines on your digital talking book player. The publication files will be placed in a folder called “NFBNewsline” in your Talking Books folder for those with a Victor Reader Stream. To begin reading your publications press 1 for your bookshelf. You will be presented with the titles of the publications on your digital talking book player along with whatever other material you have stored. For each paper there are three levels: Level 1 is the title level (of the publication you’ve opened) Level 2 is the section level Level 3 is the articles level At any of these levels pressing play will start the reading of your publication. Pressing the 2 and 8 buttons will cycle through the level choices (which include other options, such as sentence, word, and spell), and pressing the 4 and 6 buttons will move you to the previous or next option within each level, respectively. This means that, if you are at Level 2 (the sections title level), you will hear the titles of the various sections in your paper or magazine by pressing the 4 and 6 buttons. If you want to move from the sections level to the articles level, just press 8 and you will be taken to the articles level, and at that point you can press 4”and 6” to move from article to article. If at that time you want to move to the next section you’ll need to press 2 to access the Level 2 options. If you want to move from your current publication to another publication you’ll need to start by pressing “1; doing so will take you back to your bookshelf where the publications titles will be listed; To delete a publication press the 3 key, and to confirm press pound.
