That Jeff Salzenstein video relates to a kick serve... Jeff Salzenstein is demonstrating 2 ways of hitting the kick serve, one with less pronation than the other, but both ways include pronation. It's not possible to hit a kick serve with a continental grip without pronation.

While with a slice serve, it is possible to hit it with a pure karate chop motion, although I have not seen any pros do it that way.
