The end of the SMA
Greetings. In a stunning announcement today, Serotek said that they're not offering an SMA for many of their products. Hear the official announcement by listening to or downloading The Death of the SMA MP3 file published on their blog/podcast pages today. Up until now, I've thought that Kurzweil had the best upgrade program going, since they charge a flat rate of around $125 to upgrade from any version of their Kurzweil 1000 software. However, now Serotek is at the top of that list. Hopefully other companies will adopt this new initiative, or at least bring their upgrade costs way down and make it more affordable for the average blind/low vision consumer. Interesting stuff.
