Streaming Audio & Internet to Every Phone on Earth



When billions of telephone handsets can’t connect to the Internet, the problem isn’t the handsets. How many decades will it take for remote developing regions to build out wireless broadband and deploy smartphones to engage this emerging consumer class? SARACONNECTS can connect everybody in the world right now with a simple platform optimized for friendly, familiar pervasive-everywhere PSTN telephone technology they already own.

Meet SARA™, SMART AUDIO RECOGNITION AGENT, a mobile streaming service and web browser accessed via simple voice call or text and compatible with every telephone on earth.  The intelligent SARA cloud is optimized not for smartphones but for ALL phones. With SARA anybody with a phone can connect to the Internet and personalized audio from anyplace voice service is present. Everywhere on Earth.

SaraConnects brings the web and Interactive Radio to any telephone capable of a voice call
SaraConnects Interactive Radio is pervasive worldwide on any available infrastructure wireless or wired
SaraConnects Interactive Radio - Literacy Optional, Friendly for the Vision Impaired, affordable to all


We challenge an absurdity in the strategy to connect the world. Convention deems information access requires hi-res display, QWERTY, local processor and memory – connected to high speed Internet. The presumed mandate for broadband data and screen-centric devices has blinded most to exploration and deployment of nearer-term solutions to immediately benefit billions within their own lifetimes.

Harnessing existing PSTN POTS infrastructure to reinvent commercial radio; connect, inform and educate the unconnected, and bank the unbanked. SARA supports mobile e-commerce and peer-to-peer transactions. Like Android and iOS, SARA creates a complete mobile ecosystem supporting a viable, secure trade and education platform all can easily access for health services, personal records, consumer purchasing and sales – even if they don’t possess a bank account or credit card or smartphone.

    UN Sustainable Development Goals

    SARA enables Interactive Radio to a class of technology even more ubiquitous and pervasive than radio – the telephone. She is also  at the same time a humanity monitoring service that continually gathers and mines data to measure progress against the United Nations Sustainable Development Initiatives to Eradicate Poverty, End Hunger, Improve Wellness and Education, Innovation and Infrastructure. We are collaborating with organizations like Pfizer, Georgia Tech, Not Impossible Labs and InfoView to change the world.

    No intelligence is required at the device. No need for local processor, memory, display or device data plan. Literacy is not required to access and use SARA; vision is optional. SARA is instantly compatible with every handset on earth and able to deliver a personalized experience to any device they already have in their pocket. Those 3.9 billion disconnected people – a vast emerging consumer class – many possess their own basic mobile handset or live in a region serviced by basic 2G/3G mobile service. SARA is designed to easily and affordably connect anyone and everyone. Anywhere. Worldwide. SARA learns with every interaction to deliver an increasingly personalized experience to each individual user.

    SARACONNECTS is a White Plains New York based startup intent on changing humanity by making the world’s information, education and audio entertainment available to anybody with any telephone. We own the underlying patents.
