Blind Bargains Top 11 Stories of 2009: 10. Accessible Event

We're continuing our year-end look at the most influencial, ground-breaking, or otherwise important stories of 2009. In addition to our own staff, we consulted with some industry experts including ACB Radio Main Menu's Jamie Pauls, the Blind Geek Zone's Rick Harmon, Ranger from the Ranger Station Blog, and the Fred's Head Companion's Michael McCarty to help create our list. We'll present one item every day through New Year's day, when we'll reach number 1. Today, we look at a popular new online colaberation tool.

If there's one thing we've seen repeatedly from Serotek over the years, it's their willingness to delve into areas which other companies seem to ignore. They are often one of the fastest companies to react to changes in the marketplace, and often introduce new features before their competition. Their new colaberation tool, Accessible Event, is the first of two Serotek entries on this year's list, coming in at number 10.

Voice chat has been used as a presentation and training medium for much of the decade. But what perhaps makes Accessible Event unique is the ability to share content with its participants during the presentation. As a part of the Serotalk Tech Chats, for example, host Michael Lauf redirect the user to websites of interest as they are being discussed. In addition, the system allows for text questions from users which are then moderated and displayed to all participants as they are being read. These features, as well as the program's compatibility with mainstream conferencing and colaberation tools, is reason enough for Accessible Event to make our top 10.
