Windows 10 Free Upgrade to be Extended Beyond the Summer Deadline for Users of Assistive Technology

Yesterday, as part of a blog post, Microsoft reminded us that they will end the program which allowed users of the Windows Operating system running version 7 and higher to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. Just over 24 hours after the above blog post went out, Microsoft had another announcement related to the free upgrade program.

In a post on the Microsoft Windows Accessibility Blog, Microsoft has indicated that they will extend this offer for users of assistive technology. What types of assistive technology will qualify, and for how long the offer will last, remains unclear. Follow the source link to read the official announcement.

Uh, they're going to extend the upgrade deadline to a version of Windows that is one of the worst for assistive technology users? Getting desperate, for sure.

generous of them, considering that parts of Windows-10, like Edge, aren't particularly accessible. I don't plan to upgrade until I have to even if I have to pay to do it
