The Victor Reader Trek is a blind mobility device that combines the innovative media reading and playback capabilities of the popular Victor Reader Stream with the cutting-edge GPS technology of the Trekker Breeze.

Imagine a device that gives you the best of both worlds: the confidence to get where you’re going easily and the freedom to enjoy entertainment on the go. That’s the magic of the VictorReader Trek, the multiuse handheld device designed to make mobility easy and enjoyable for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Navigate the world around you and that latest bestseller with one consistent physical experience!

Today people everywhere consume content while traveling, but for someone who is blind or visually impaired physical keys plus a consistent user experience is so much more important while navigating outside with one hand already occupied by a cane or dog guide.

Book Reading and Playback

The VictorReader Trek combines the world-renowned simple book reading and media playback experience of the VictorReader Stream with the navigation guidance technology found in the Trekker Breeze.

VictorReader Trek gives you instant access to the latest books, magazine, music, movies, podcasts and more – all in the palm of your hand.  Catch your favorite show while you’re riding the train, or playback recorded audio notes from your lecture while you’re walking around campus.  If you get distracted or lose your place in a book, just press that same “Where Am I” button to find it again in a flash.

Orientation Mode

VictorReader Trek gives you verbal instructions to help you move around independently and with confidence, while you’re commuting, traveling, shopping or just out and about.

You can plan your route ahead of time and add landmarks as you go.  If you get lost along the way, simply press the “Where Am I” button and Trek will tell you exactly where you are at that exact point in time.

With the press of the online button you can toggle between the always-on Orientation guidance mode and offline or online book reading:

  • Take a long bus ride and read books or listen to podcasts.
  • Need to check where you are?  Simply toggle to the orientation mode and press the “Where Am I” button.
  • With the press of that one button, Trek will tell you:
    • Your current nearest address
    • Cardinal direction you are traveling
    • Description of the next intersection.  (Whether it is a 3 way or 4-way intersection, which streets go which direction and approximate distance)
  • Next instruction if you are following a route
  • Want to mark that specific intersection to return to on a future trip?  Simply drop a voice tagged landmark and you can receive turn by turn directions to that exact point.
  • Want to navigate to a specific address?  Use Trek’s familiar telephone keypad to quickly type the address.
  • If you don’t need to get off the bus, simply press the toggle button again and you will be back in your book or podcast exactly where you left off.

VictorReader Trek provides specific pedestrian or vehicle instructions:

  • Pedestrian directions ensure the user is not guided on major highways
  • Vehicle instructions reduce the amount of details provided to the user so they can more easily direct a sighted driver

VictorReader Trek specializes when you are in the open area!

Navigating on a college campus or similar campus environments can be challenging if you are new to the environment.  Trek offers options to make you feel immediately more comfortable.

  • Drop voice tagged landmarks at each building you will be returning to and Trek will always provide you with instructions to navigate there, even when no streets are found
  • Administrators or Orientation and Mobility (O&M instructors can upload GPX files containing the exact locations of their buildings on that campus and add them to the Trek’s landmarks list
  • Travel with confidence knowing that your landmarks will always be your points of reference

But we did not just merge two products.  We designed a product for the future of orientation:

  • The VictorReader Trek includes Bluetooth for listening to Bluetooth headsets. (We recommend the bone conduction headsets to avoid blocking one’s ears while traveling)
  • Users can also use headsets with control keys to modify the volume and perform commands related to book playback or GPS navigation with the device in their pocket.
  • Device is iBeacon ready for future indoor navigation features to come in a software update.
  • Will support the upcoming Galileo orientation system for even better accuracy when traveling.
  • We use map data from TomTom which will be updated on a regular basis.
  • Users can use entire country maps now rather than individual map sections.
  • Trek has an included FM radio which will  be activated in a future software update
