Microsoft has announced the closing of free Windows 10 upgrade from December 31. So, if you are a Windows 7 or 8 users with Microsoft’s accessibility features than this is your last chance to upgrade your system, without paying any money.
Initially, the company stopped offering free Windows 10 upgrade last year in July. But users with accessibility features got an extension, a report in ZDNet said on Saturday. The company said, “We are not restricting the free upgrade offer to specific assistive technologies. If you use assistive technology on Windows, you are eligible for the free upgrade offer.”
Accessibility features are designed to help people with disabilities use technology more easily. For example, a text-to-speech feature may read text out loud for people with limited vision, while a speech-recognition feature allows users with limited mobility to control the computer with their voice.
