Victor Readeer Stream Next Gen Query

So is the a way to access the internal memory in these devices?

I am told that the operating system is Linux.

Cheers

Andrea

Smiling?
 

Not sure if it's actually the A way as you said, but yes, it is Linux based and the internal memory is beneath the battery in a micro SD card which is under the sticker of course in the middle compartment.

Hi,
Well I'm not so sure it's linux.
I think it's still bloddy windows CE.
I'm testing it right now, and it's quite nice for what it is.

Its Lynux.
I know someone who has modified their Stream to make it more functional and faster.
According to him the Stream uses a lot of widely available LYNUX open-source material which is obviously adapted to suit the needs of the device in some parts.

The big question is how long will it be before HumanWare etc make full use of the capabilities of a Raspberry Pi system?
There are now Braille devices using Raspberry Pi computers so I reckon it won’t be long before we see other devices designed for the Blind using these and about time too.

That is if they not to lazy. The way they handled the stream, trek,
and feature design and implementation is shocking thinking of what you
pay for those. I was hoping they could move to android, as it might
then be possible for them to add youtube/spotify/deezer intigration.

You don’t have to be too lazy to use a Raspberry Pi, saving money would be a great incentive for one thing and the Pi just continues to evolve for another.

Not these days.
The Raspberry Pi has come one hell of a long way in the 6 years I’ve been using the machines and they’re used in all sorts of commercial applications now, everything from audio field recorders to voice assistants and even - as I’ve already pointed out - Braille Displays.

So is the a way to access the internal memory in these devices?

I am told that the operating system is Linux.

I'm the last to defend Humanware but I do give credit where its due.
The Stream is an awful creation and could be improved upon but using LYNUX as the operating system for the device was a great idea meaning that much of the firmware needed was already available so only minor modifications were required to get the product going and adapt it for visually impaired people.
The Raspberry Pi runs LYNUX as well.
Humanware have gotten some things right and one of those is the Braillenote Touch which also uses a widely available operating system in the form of Android - which is another form of LYNUX -.

Furdermore, if they ever do it, they will save money but cell it for thouzents, so not going to benifit enough blind people in the long run.

Not these days.
The Raspberry Pi has come one hell of a long way in the 6 years I’ve
been using the machines and they’re used in all sorts of commercial
applications now, everything from audio field recorders to voice
assistants and even - as I’ve already pointed out - Braille Displays.

Hi,
Yeah let's partially hope so.
I say partially because it might lack some necessary power.

The big question is how long will it be before HumanWare etc make
full use of the capabilities of a Raspberry Pi system?
There are now Braille devices using Raspberry Pi computers so I
reckon it won’t be long before we see other devices designed for the
Blind using these and about time too.

Its Lynux.
I know someone who has modified their Stream to make it more
functional and faster.
According to him the Stream uses a lot of widely available LYNUX
open-source material which is obviously adapted to suit the needs of
the device in some parts.

Hi,
Well I'm not so sure it's linux.
I think it's still bloddy windows CE.
I'm testing it right now, and it's quite nice for what it is.

Not sure if it's actually the A way as you said, but yes, it is
Linux based and the internal memory is beneath the battery in a
micro SD card which is under the sticker of course in the middle compartment.
