With cutting-edge GPS technology, the Victor Reader Trek makes walking on foot, by car or by public transit a breeze. For those who are visually impaired (an estimated 1.3 million people in the U.S. are considered legally blind), being able to move around confidently and independently can be a game changer.
With the Victor Reader Trek, they can now feel safe venturing out into the world knowing they have a tool that will help to guide them every step of the way.
With clear, easy-to-follow verbal instructions, blind or visually-impaired users are able to understand exactly what’s to come on their route and how to navigate accordingly.
The Trek essentially paints a picture of the world through sounds. It verbally announces names of streets, intersections and landmarks as you walk, allowing you to always know where you are and where you are going. Getting around open areas, such as a park, can be very difficult — but Trek allows you to drop voice-tagged landmarks and cues to be saved for future use. Some specific phrases could be “bridge over water” or “playground on the right.”
But it’s not all about directional orientation; the Victor Reader Trek also provides an entertainment aspect. The latest books, magazines, movies and podcasts can all be directly accessed and enjoyed simultaneously. This device is great for individuals who are not tablet or smartphone users because of its simplistic user-friendly design.
Delivering orientation and entertainment all in the palm of your hand!
