Loaded with a number of smart features like “Snap Assist”, “Continum”, “New Task View” Windows and more, Windows 10 is undoubtedly the biggest update ever. Microsoft is leaving no stone unturned in its continued effort to ensure the OS has the maximum adoption.
Windows 10 was available as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 users. But the offer ended on July 29th. Now, the Home edition is available for $119, while the Pro edition comes at $199.
However, if you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 as yet, there is an opportunity to do so free of cost. If you use assistive technologies, you still qualify for the free upgrade.
- “Assistive Technologies” has been developed to offer additional accessibility to the people with physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments, and disabilities. It comes with several features like a narrator to read text aloud, the magnifier to magnify things, on-screen keyboard, keyboard shortcuts etc.
- Microsoft doesn’t ask you to show the proof whether you use “Assistive Technologies” or not during the installation process. Therefore, the update seems to be available for any Windows 7 or 8.1 users.
