J-Say Technology, Change of Ownership

Hello everyone

This will be quite a lengthy blog post, but it would be very much appreciated if existing J-Say customers, together with potential distributors could please read it carefully. Our contact details will be given at the end if you have further questions.

As of Monday 15 December 2014, the ownership of the J-Say product will change from Astec to Hartgen Consultancy.

As developer of J-Say during the past 12 years, I have been extremely pleased to work with Astec and I do wish them the very best for the future. However, there are some very specific directions I would like to take the product during the next year at least, and so we’ve mutually agreed that Hartgen Consultancy will from this point forward take responsibility for development, sales and support. We hope like me you will see this as good news.

J-Say will be available to purchase from our accessible online store or by telephone. If you require a copy of J-Say now to accommodate a specific Dragon/JAWS release, please feel free to discuss this with us and we will do our very best to accommodate you. However, we are working on a much more updated version of J-Say for release in early 2015. Anyone who does purchase a copy of the product from now until the release of J-Say 13 will be entitled to a free upgrade as and when it becomes available.

In terms of pricing, there is good news. We intend to reduce the cost of the J-Say package when someone purchases it for the first time, together with a small reduction on upgrade costs too. The next update will be a very significant one, and we do want to give good value for money particularly to the people who have not necessarily had a good experience in recent months. We hope by reducing the costs, this shows good faith on our part. Pricing will be made available on our website next week.

Finally, if you represent a company previously as a J-Say distributor, and you would like to go on doing so, please feel free to contact us so we can get to learn about you, find out how we can best support you and discuss enquiries you are likely to have. We would very much like to hear from you.

We certainly expect to be testing J-Say 13 in January with a release as soon after that time as possible. J-Say 13 will contain considerably improved technology, including significantly enhanced Windows navigation, new features, new installer and the ability for the product to function alongside multiple versions of JAWS, thereby making J-Say much more flexible. Our lower cost product, J-Dictate, will also be launched during 2015, for use with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium.

I would like to thank you for reading and we look forward to some good months ahead with J-Say technology.

Best wishes and happy holidays!

JAWS-Based Products, the Road Ahead.

Hi to all

I know many of you have been wanting to know about the forthcoming release of the Leasey product. There is a good deal of expectation in the community and an element of frustration as to it not being available. To a slightly lesser extent, this also applies to the next release of the J-Say product combining JAWS for Windows with Dragon NaturallySpeaking. As a result of that, I need to share with you some information so potential customers' expectations are correctly set.

For some time now, my employers at Astec and I have not been able to agree on important product related issues, which have in the past included time allocation of development and more recently the online presence of Leasey. This latter point has caused much delay in the product's release. There is no value for anyone in going further than that.

After some discussion, we have agreed that I will become self-employed shortly and will take on the responsibility of the product line. I see this as an important step forward. The products are only sustainable if customers have a good experience when evaluating them, they have a truly accessible way of purchasing them online, they have good marketing behind them and can be properly supported.

I want to do two things here. First, to wish Astec nothing but good things for the future. In the area of training, they truly are excellent. Second, to reassure people that the products will be in good hands. The J-Say product particularly will be completely redesigned to make it faster, stable and to contain more features which customers require. Moreover, the price of J-Say absolutely must be reduced.

In terms of Leasey, now we are on the right road eventually, we're now making some final adjustments to it and the online presence, after which time it will be ready to go.

In closing, being my own boss is not something I've done for quite some time, but if the products are to be sustained and to be modernised, this is the only way forward. I've written them for 12 years now. I firmly believe in them. For many people, J-Say particularly has been a life-changer. People who have not been able to use a computer due to a physical restriction are now doing so many things with it, including online shopping, publishing books and so on. J-Say is a force for good and time needs to be spent on it to keep pace with our changing environment. I pledge to you now that this will happen.

In terms of Leasey, we've been asked if the product will be available to purchase before Christmas. Yes, we can guarantee it will be with you well before then. We can now see a short road ahead. Leasey is a wonderful product. It offers many features which will be useful for both beginners and experienced computer users. We look forward very much to bringing this innovative product to market.

This website will reflect these new changes in the weeks ahead so please check back soon!
