In November last year, Microsoft announced that everyone who was using a previous version of Windows with assistive technologies had until the last day of 2017 to upgrade for free to Windows 10. In a recent update, Microsoft extended that date to 16 January 2018.

"If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies," announces Microsoft. "Please take advantage of this offer before it expires on January 16, 2018."

Microsoft is also not restricting the offer to specific assistive technologies; if you're using any assistive software, then you're eligible for the free upgrade. These tools aid people with a wide range of disabilities to work and play better on mobile and PC devices. Currently, the range includes third-party assistive technology products for vision, learning, dexterity, mobility, language, and communication.

If you qualify for the free upgrade, then you should make use of the offer as Microsoft support is now almost completely focused on Windows 10. The October 2017 Fall Creators Update added a host of improvements and security updates that you don't want to miss out on.

If you make use of assistive technologies, then you can follow this link to upgrade for free to Windows 10.

In other Windows 10 news, the first episode of "This Week on Windows 10" focuses on a faster way to continue work from your smartphone to your Windows 10 PC - seamless integration between the devices. Those making use of 3D models in say Word or PowerPoint can now make use of 3D for Office, a new tool that easily inserts 3D images in documents.
