Navigate The World Around You and That Latest Best Seller 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.

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.


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

  • Listen to audiobooks or podcasts.
  • Check your location by toggling the orientation mode and pressing the “Where Am I” 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
  • Mark specific intersections by dropping a voice tagged landmark and you can receive turn by turn directions to that exact point at a later time.
  • Search for an address by typing it in using the keypad.
  • Going back to your audiobook or podcast you can start off exactly where you left off.
