Serotek Adopts U3 Smart Platform

Minneapolis , Minn. – August 8, 2006 – Serotek Corporation, the leading provider of Internet and digital information accessibility software and systems, announced the adoption of the U3 ™ smart drive computing platform as the mobile platform of choice for System Access and FreedomBox products. U3 is the tested, approved and accepted platform for personal workspace portability.

“By utilizing U3, we're able to leverage an international standard for our portable accessibility products,” said Mike Calvo , CEO, Serotek, “This enables us to deliver software all over the world without shipping any hardware, plus gain access to millions of mainstream smart drive users.”

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 Mozilla, Firefox, 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 well-secured PC, 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.”
