Serotek’s Screen Reader
A screen reader is a text to speech application that renders elements on a computer screen through synthetic speech. The application relies on a series of keystrokes to replicate mouse functionality, and through these easy keystrokes you can navigate menus, adjust system settings, and surf the Internet. System Access, Serotek’s award-winning screen reader, is the perfect solution for the computer novice and expert alike. Whether you require speech, text enlargement, or Braille access, System Access is your reliable companion at home, in the class, or on the job.

Serotek in the Workplace
Many companies are turning to the internet for conducting meetings as it saves time and money. Sadly, most common solutions for webinars and internet meetings are hard to use for the blind and visually impaired. Accessible Event is an internet meeting program that can be used with a company’s existing software, or used on its own, for providing voice and data presentations. Whether for work or play, Serotek has the best tools to help you stay connected anywhere your profession may take you.
What Customers Say
"Excellent direction of your company. Access is a right! Please stress that even more in your literature. Access is a civil right! I believe assistive tech companies fail to emphasize this fact. With SA To Go, accessing computers is no longer a barrier. That's how it should be! Frankly, if the competition fails to take seriously what you have accomplished, you have every right to "kill" it!"--D. Mandell
