I have a question.

At the moment, I do recordings on my iPhone, but the problem is that, 
when I rewind, it does it in 12 minute increments, and then 35 minute 

I also own a small Olympic digital recorder. It does the same thing.

Does the Victor Reader Stream let you rewind in a matter of seconds like 
old tape recorders let you do?
