Software enhancements demonstrated at national conventions
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn – July 6, 2009 – Serotek Corporation, the leading provider of internet and digital information accessibility software and services, release a variety of enhancements to its System Access product line. The features were demonstrated at two rcnt conventions for the blind conducted by industry associations; American Council of the Blind (ACB) and National Federation of the Blind (NFB). Since Serotek requires no software maintenance agreements, these additional capabilities are provided free of charge to all System Access users.
Support for the Microsoft Windows 7® operating system is among the new features being demonstrated, as is the highly anticipated support for the text-to-speech engines based on Microsoft Speech API version 4. For those with access to SAPI 4 versions of software speech synthesizers, such as IBM ViaVoice TTS or ETI-Eloquence, this allows them to listen to System Access and SAMNet™, Serotek’s online community, with familiar voices.
“The Web Accessibility Initiative’s ARIA standard greatly expands accessibility to the growing number of today’s interactive Web sites,” said Mike Calvo, CEO, Serotek Corporation, “And Serotek’s customers deserve equal access to those sites without paying maintenance fees.”
System Access also provides access to the popular Skype 4.0 software, which allows users to speak to friends, family and business associates located anywhere in the world. Users can now call any standard telephone, send and receive text messages, and have incoming messages spoken automatically.
And finally, subscribers to Serotek’s SAMNet (System Access Mobile Network) can now create audio CDs with the added ability to make playlists and mixes of favorite songs. With an improved media library playlist and CD burning features, System Access now supports a wider variety of files.
Serotek Corporation is a leading technology company that develops software and manufactures accessibility solutions under the System Access brand. Committed to the mission of providing accessibility anywhere, Serotek began with the launch of the first online community specifically designed to meet the needs of people with visual impairment. Since then, Serotek has introduced several powerful, affordable solutions that require minimal training and investment. For more information, visit www.serotek.com.
