A little assistive technology. A little consumer advice. Some reactions to breaking news, and plenty of rants. What else did you expect from a Serotek blog?

A Tax Break You Can't Beat!

There are two certainties we tend to agree with, death and taxes. Actually, there is a third certainty we can add to the list, and that is competitive prices for your hard-earned money.

That’s really no shocker though, right? Look around the access technology industry and identify just one company who charges less for comparable products.

A DocuScan Plus Endorsement

We regularly receive positive feedback from satisfied customers. Every now and then we pick out some of these unsolicited testimonials to share with you since their words will mean a lot more than our own biased opinions. In that spirit, here is one noteworthy message from one of our DocuScan Plus users, reprinted with permission:

Greetings From Your New Biggest Fan;

Liked It? Disliked It? Review It!

Sero has always been about connecting you to your favorite content and your community. Now, we're bringing these two aspects of Sero together. When you listen to a piece of content, now you can tell the Sero community what you think, by giving us your rating and writing a review.

Giving us your rating is as easy as pressing one button. Once you've done that, you'll have the option to write a review as well. And don't forget that you can share your favorite content on social networks, by email, or even in a text message if you're running Sero on your smartphone.

Double Your Spending Power on Black Friday!

How many times have you come across those gift certificate opportunities where you have to spend a good chunk of money to earn just a little money? You know the ones we’re talking about. Spend twenty-five to get thirty or some such. Well, we know there’s a place for those opportunities, but in typical Serotek fashion, we want to break tradition.

Why You Should Upgrade from Windows 7: Sometimes the Little Things Make All the Difference

It happens from time to time to all of us who rely on a screen reader. You go to a website, and with no prompting on your part, the website starts playing some music, a video, or something else that drowns out your screen reader. How do you turn the sound down, or just make it stop, short of closing the web page altogether? You try to find your way to the stop button or the volume control, but the sound from the web page is making it hard to hear what your screen reader is telling you. Wouldn't it be nice if your computer could automatically turn down the other sound while it's talking?

DocuScan Plus Will not be Fooled!

You might remember Brad Dunse from his contributions over on the SeroTalk blog. He’s got a knack with the words, and when we received the following email from him, we thought it worth asking for permission to reprint it here. He agreed, and so here you are, proof positive that DSP really is everything it’s cracked up to be, from the words of one satisfied customer.

Here’s Brad:

Blindfold Racer Championship 2016: A National Audio Gaming Tournament for The Blind and Visually Impaired

From time to time we like to bring you items of interest outside of the Serotek community. This is one such opportunity we thought you might find worth looking into:

From the Staff Files: Cinderella and her Grand Adventure

The following comes from our newest member in the Serotek family, Rhonda Partain. By all accounts she is exactly the primary company voice we needed on the other end of the main telephone line. We have heard great things, and here are her observations as both a staff member and user of our technology:

Serotek's Position on Microsoft Edge

Summer months are typically a great time for relaxing and unwinding. We here at Serotek recognize the value of rest and recreation, but as you know, the technology landscape is in a constant shift, requiring us to work overtime in the lab so that your favorite applications work the way they're supposed to when you're ready to come back from vacation. We have a number of short-term and long-term goals on the drawing board, some of which we'll share in upcoming posts, some of which we'll explore in a soon to be announced series of podcasts.
