Aroga alliance expands distribution of System Access and

FreedomBox assistive technology products in Canada

 

Minneapolis, Minn. – September 8, 2006 – Serotek Corporation, the leading provider of Internet and digital information accessibility software and systems, today announced the execution of a distributor agreement with Aroga Marketing Group, Inc., a provider of assistive and adaptive technology to Canadians with disabilities.

As a distributor, Aroga will be responsible for creating a network of dealers, and supplying Serotek and other assistive technology products to users throughout Canada . It will also provide users with demonstrations and training on how to best use Serotek's FreedomBox and System Access technologies to enhance user independence and expand the functionality of their current computer systems.

“We are pleased to have The Aroga Group joining us in bringing this full range of assistive solutions to a larger user base,” said Mike Calvo, CEO, Serotek Corporation. “They have a solid reputation in Canada and we are confident this alliance will rapidly expand our presence in this vital market.”

Both FreedomBox and System Access provide easy to use, fully featured, mobile access to Windows and the Internet for blind, visually impaired or physically disabled users. The FreedomBox Internet application suite integrates web browsing, email, streaming media, instant messaging, and more in a consistent, fully accessible user interface. Users may customize FreedomBox and have fully personalized Internet access anywhere. System Access provides highly automated and transparent access to the Windows operating system and numerous applications, including Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader, Skype, Winamp, and many other popular titles. System Access also makes the U3 Launchpad accessible so users can manage their U3 smart drives with ease. Because FreedomBox and System Access are U3 smart, users can immediately run them from their U3 smart drives on any U3-capable computer, including well-secured computers in public places. No other assistive technology provides this combination of functionality and mobility. Says Calvo, “It truly is accessibility anywhere.”

“What attracted us to Serotek was the fact that they were designing products with the understanding that not everyone is a computer expert,” said Steve Barclay, Aroga's Director of Customer Care, “[Serotek products] require almost no training to use. In order to access this kind of information previously, a visually impaired user might have needed weeks of training. Now we can have them up and running in a day.”

The FreedomBox Network delivers full Internet and Web capability to people who may have never before used a computer. At the same time, it delivers e-mail, search, Web management, and remote computing tools powerful enough for the most sophisticated business user. Additional products, such as the Key to Freedom and the PassKey, allow people with disabilities to make any computer accessible. “In a country like Canada this is a huge advantage,” said Barclay, “Many people with disabilities have been unable to get any kind of computer training because they lived in a remote location and there was no local resource or person capable of helping them. Now we can connect directly to them and provide one-on-one training without ever having to leave the office.”
