Those using a previous version of Windows with assistive technologies have until 31 December 2017 to upgrade for free to Windows 10. Assistive technologies are software design especially for PC and mobile phone users with special needs, examples are Zoom Text for the visually impaired, writing tools to aid with speech and writing, and a variety of other assistive tools.

"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, announced Microsoft. "Please take advantage of this offer before it expires on December 31, 2017."

Most people who wanted to make use of the free Windows 10 upgrade have probably already done so by now. The offer expired for the standard free upgrade on 29 July 2016. The July 2017 Windows 10 Anniversary update included several features to aid computer users with disabilities, e.g. better app integration and an improved Narrator experience.

If you make use of assisitive technologies, then you can follow this link to upgrade for free to Windows 10 before December 31. Remember, all new PCs releases with Windows 10 as the operating system, and if you don't have a valid license you'll have to pay for it when you purchase any new PC.
