The free Windows 10 upgrade offer may technically be over, but it isn’t 100% gone. Microsoft still provides a free Windows 10 upgrade to anyone who checks a box saying they use assistive technologies on their computer.
Update: The Assistive Technologies offer will end on December 31, 2017. However, if you take advantage of the offer before it ends, your PC will have a permanent genuine Windows 10 license.
How This Free Upgrade Offer Works
What’s New in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update
Microsoft has announced that it wants people who use assistive technologies to be able to upgrade to use the new accessibility features in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update. In the Anniversary Update, the Narrator screen reader is improved and new applications like the Edge browser, Cortana, and Mail offer improved accessibility features. Windows users who use assistive technologies (like the narrator, on-screen keyboard, or high contrast desktop theme) may not have wanted to upgrade before these improvements were made.
