When playing back a recording, you can rewind in five second increments.

Hope this helps,

>> New updates for Stream and Brailliant
>>    Victor Reader Stream and Brailliant updates available
>> September 14, 2016 -- HumanWare announces the immediate release of
>> Stream version 4.7 and Brailliant version 2.2. The following are the
>> feature enhancements which users will immediately see:
>>      Victor Reader Stream Version 4.7
>>  * *Support for subscribing and unsubscribing to NFB Newsline
>>    publications directly on the Stream (U.S. only).* Now similar to
>>    subscribing to podcasts, you can subscribe to Newsline publications
>>    via your Stream’s online capability. In the past NFB Newsline users
>>    needed to handle the subscriptions using their computer’s internet
>>    browser. Today you can search for a news publication you want to
>>    always have on your Stream, subscribe to it, and you will always
>>    have the daily newspaper with your morning coffee.
>>  * *Support for keeping specific NFB Newsline books (U.S. only). * In
>>    addition to handling the subscriptions to Newsline content directly
>>    on the Stream, now you can save daily versions of a publication for
>>    later use, just by tapping the 3 key.
>>  * *Ability to sync your time with an Internet time server.* After you
>>    update and connect to your Wi-Fi, first set your time to the current
>>    time in your time zone. After this initial setting is done, your
>>    Stream will always keep its time, as it is constantly validating its
>>    time with a network time server. And if you are someone who prefers
>>    to have their clocks set 5 minutes fast, have no fear as you can
>>    continue doing so. After you set it 5 minutes fast, it will continue
>>    being synchronized at that specific time until you change it again.
>> picture of a Stream
>> This version is live now and Streams connected to WIFI will begin
>> receiving notifications that a new version is available. The support web
>> page will gradually be updated with the new software versions, for those
>> users who prefer to manually update.
>>      Brailliant Version 2.2
>>  * *Introduces HID over Bluetooth.*In addition to offering a more
>>    stable USB HID experience, Brailliant version 2.2 offers the same
>>    solid connection over Bluetooth.
>>  * *Channel Switching Hotkey:*Now if you are connected to your PC via
>>    USB and you also have your Brailliant paired to your phone.
>> picture of a Brailliant
>> This version update is also live now and will be available when you
>> connect your Brailliant to your computers and run the Brailliant BITools
>> software application, selecting the "Update Brailliant Firmware" button.
