                        New Generation Victor Reader Stream, version 4.2 

                  September 5, 2013 — HumanWare is pleased to announce the 
latest software upgrade, version 4.2, for the popular new generation Victor 
Reader Stream portable digital talking book player.

                  "The Victor Reader Stream is HumanWare's most popular 
product, and we are pleased to offer our customers exciting and useful new 
capabilities with this software upgrade," says Matthew Janusauskas, 
Technical Product Manager for Victor Reader products. "We have added 
enriched media choices for avid Stream users, from important sources like 
the National Federation of the Blind and Bookshare®, as well as support for 
Microsoft® Windows Media®."

                        NFB-NEWSLINE®, a service of the National Federation 
of the Blind, offers 327 national and local newspapers and 40 magazines to 
its more than 100,000 users. Stream owners can enter their account 
information directly on the Stream and begin receiving their favorite 
newspapers and magazines wirelessly without a PC or telephone. Stream 
automatically synchronizes with NFB-NEWSLINE and maintains the same issues 
of publications that are found on the server, which usually includes today's 
edition, yesterday's edition and the previous Sunday edition for newspapers 
and the latest 2 editions for magazines.

                        Bookshare® has more than 200,000 books available for 
its 260,000 members, and the Stream will now be able to search the entire 
Bookshare online library, provide wireless book downloads, and automatically 
unpack and decrypt downloads using the member's account credentials.

                        "HumanWare has had a long and successful affiliation 
with the NFB and with Bookshare, so we are happy that we can continue to 
have a close relationship with these fine organizations with our products 
and their content, to the benefit of our mutual customers" remarked Gilles 
Pepin, CEO of HumanWare.

                        Version 4.2 is a free download for Stream customers, 
and can be installed automatically over a wireless connection, downloaded 
from HumanWare's web site or installed by using the free HumanWare Companion 
PC software application.

                        "We are thrilled that access to NFB-NEWSLINE® 
content is now integrated into Victor Reader Stream, making it easier than 
ever for our subscribers to download and read their favorite content with 
this groundbreaking device," said Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National 
Federation of the Blind. "We have a wonderful working relationship with 
HumanWare and look forward to continuing to work with the company to make 
the ever-expanding selection of NFB-NEWSLINE® content available through its 

                        "The ability to search, download, and read books 
wirelessly on the Stream will greatly improve the ease and reading 
experience for Bookshare members. We applaud this update and look forward to 
serving many happy Stream users." added Betsy Beaumon, VP and General 
Manager of Global Literacy at Benetech.
