Microsoft was supposed to stop the free upgrade to Windows 10 with assistive technologies on December 31, but it looks like the window still exists, allowing anyone interested to install on the company's latest operating system without paying.
Microsoft has allowed anyone to upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 for free for the first 12 months after the release of the operating system in July 2015.
The free version of the operating system, although it expired a year later, continued to apply to systems with assistive technologies, allowing free upgrades to Windows 10 again, but without any substantial control.
If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Window 10 for free as Microsoft continues its efforts to improve the Window 10 experience for people using these technologies.
With Windows 10 Anniversary Update, we've taken some steps to improve the accessibility of Windows 10. To learn more, read the blog that details some of these improvements.
Before upgrading, contact the assistive technology provider to learn more about the compatibility of their software with Window 10.

Yes, I use assistive technologies and I'm ready to upgrade to Window 10. *
Today, however, the offer is still available and allows free installation of Windows 10 from Windows 7 and 8.1.
It should be noted that it is very likely that Microsoft will block in the coming days as technicians will have to return to work from vacation and fix the upgrade page. On the other hand, this omission is well suited to the goals of Microsoft, which wants to install the operating system on as many PCs as possible.
However, if you need a cheap license for Windows 7, or 8 to allow you a free update, read the following publication.
