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?

Back to School Means Back to Discounts!

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires children and youth ages 3-21 with disabilities be provided a free and appropriate public school education. Unfortunately, there are too many cases of schools unable to provide the necessary resources to provide and maintain a quality level of education. Serotek is playing a small part in putting a dent in these disparities.

Our Position on Windows 10

If you're running most versions of Windows 7 or Windows 8, chances are good you've received an invitation to upgrade to Windows 10. You'll find a new icon in your System Tray that says as much, but is it a good idea to be an early adopter?

The short answer, in our opinion, is unless you require Windows 10 for work, you should hold off on upgrading.
