Who is Pneuma Solutions?
Backed by two decades of creating award-winning innovative accessible cloud technologies for people with visual impairments, Pneuma Solutions is the global leader in accessible cloud solutions.
Under the visionary direction of founder and CEO, Mike Calvo, Pneuma Solutions helps organizations transition to a more accessible online environment for people with a print disability.
Our cloud-based tools allow you to provide information securely to your print disabled consumers, students, employees, and citizens in a multitude of accessible formats.
We believe access to information is not a privilege, it’s a right.
We also believe it is your right to obtain affordable, accessible cloud solutions to serve your end user.
When organizations like yours implement our tools, together we help make it a more inclusive world for people with disabilities.
Whether from our globally distributed cloud infrastructure… or directly from your network, we provide powerful, secure solutions with a convenient “set it and forget it” design.
The vision for making affordable products and services to help people with disabilities began back in 2001.
It was then Mr. Calvo founded the Serotek Corporation – “The Accessibility Anywhere People.”
Aware of the burden expensive assistive technology had on blind and visually impaired consumers, Mr. Calvo was driven to find an affordable solution.
Combined with some of the most innovative and passionate members of the community, he established a vision to improve their lives. The result was a suite of affordable, powerful, and intuitive, cross-platform products and services.
He also founded and serves as Director of the Accessibility is a Right Foundation. The AIR Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, whose mission is to advocate, teach, and deliver tools that promote accessibility as a fundamental human right.
The Amazon e-book authored by Mr. Calvo, Cloudy with a Chance of Profit, is an historical and predictive look at the affects cloud technology has and will have on world culture and global business.
The Challenge Which Drives Affordability
Mr. Calvo publicly challenged adaptive equipment and software companies to join Serotek’s quest to make accessible products affordable for blind and visually impaired people.
Besides providing the disability market with record setting affordable products, Serotek backed their promise with – never seen before – free lifetime software product updates.
This initiative helped pave the way for other companies to begin producing more affordable, even free open source adaptive technologies.
Industry Cloud-Based Pioneer
Recognizing the power of cloud-based tools in other applications. Mr. Calvo led Serotek to become the industry’s pioneer of accessible, cross-platform cloud-based products and services for blind and visually impaired people, world-wide.
Focusing on affordability, and portability, several powerful cloud-based multi-platform products were a result of Serotek’s efforts.
- System Access. The first ever multi-platform, portable screen reader.
- DocuScan Plus. First cloud-based scanning software to read text embedded within graphical files.
- RIM and RAM remote access tools. Utilities to enable accessible remote tech support, and peer-to-peer remote computer access.
- Accessible Event. The first accessible online meeting environment non-dependent on WebEx or other meeting environments.
- Sero. The first and only online community resource for news, entertainment, live interaction, forums and other tools for the blind and visually impaired community.
Ease and Simplicity
Even though affordability has always been a primary objective in product creation, ease of use has been its twin goal.
Simplicity and intuitive product development continues to be the accessibility goal for us at Pneuma Solutions.
Advancing the Vision
Realizing organizations had no cost effective way of providing 100% inclusive access to information for end users, the Pneuma Solutions passion to develop them began.
As a result of that effort, today, we bring powerful, accessible cloud solutions beyond just the consumer market.
Leveraging the power of tools like our Scribe Augmented Document Remediation (ADR) technology, organizations like educational facilities, municipalities, and businesses large and small across the globe can now provide securely encrypted, inclusive information to their print impaired end users.
Recognizing the need for accessible educational materials, Pneuma Solutions developed the Scribe for Education program. This program allows educators of print disabled children access to Scribe’s ADR technology, providing accessible documents to the future leaders of our world.
Pneuma Solutions continues to advance accessible cloud solutions as technology advances and, presenting more opportunities to make it a more inclusive world for people with disabilities.
