We have noticed that there are a lot of threads and articles lately regarding using a link for those requiring assistive technologies to upgrade to Windows 10 after July 29th, 2016. (I am deliberately not linking to it for reasons that will become obvious).

There is some misinformation surrounding it. First and foremost, it is incorrect to state that using keyboard shortcuts such as 'control+c' counts as using an assistive technology and therefore entitles you to upgrade. Microsoft have informed me that the webpage being mentioned as an acceptable reason to use the tool only refers to an example of ways to make Windows more accessible, but that is not classified as using an assistive technology that allows you to legitimately upgrade this way.

Assistive technologies are for those with disabilities and who cannot use a computer in a conventional manner (e.g. narrators for the blind, eye tracking machines for those unable to move a mouse, suck and puff machines, etc). Unless you use those, please do not use the link floating about to late upgrade.

As it stands, that method of upgrading is based on an honour rule. However, having spoken with MS earlier today, they inform me that within the next couple of weeks that webpage and tool will be removed and instead require you to contact MS support directly to upgrade this way. This is being done, to, (direct quote) 'stop people who are currently abusing the tool.'

Please do not use the 'Assistive Technologies' webpage tool to late upgrade to Windows 10 if you have missed the free upgrade offer. It is only for those with disabilities, and is being changed soon to prevent abuse of the system.
