Microsoft continues to support a free upgrade to Windows 10 for people who are using Assistive Technologies (AT) in Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, despite officially ending their promotional offer on 29 July 2016.

For the general public, the free upgrade offer to Windows 10 ended many months ago, yet Microsoft continues to improve their Windows 10 experience for people who use AT. Before upgrading however, the company urges users of AT to check with your assistive technology provider to find out more about software compatibility with Windows 10 technologies.

Given the large number of accessibility functionality to be found within Windows 10, including the full-screen Magnifier feature and Color Filters, plus Narrator screen reader, and touchscreen support, the continuance of this offer is welcome news for people with a disability who use AT and are interested in upgrading their Windows to the latest Operating System without charge.

To take advantage of this free upgrade offer go to the Windows 10 upgrade webpage.
