Microsoft has revealed that the upgrade to Windows 10 for Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs will continue to be made available beyond its July 29 deadline for users who need its assistive technologies.

Windows 10

Microsoft reconfirmed the ending of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer deadline earlier this week. However, in a blog post, Microsoft said there will be an exception to this deadline:

As you may have heard, the free Windows 10 upgrade offer for customers running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 is set to end on July 29, but we want to clarify that that deadline will not apply to customers who use assistive technologies. We are continuing to deliver on our previously-shared vision for accessibility for Windows 10 and we are committed to ensuring that users of assistive technologies have the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 for free as we do so.

More information on how those customers can continue to use the Windows 10 free upgrade offer will be revealed in the near future.
