What are Assistive Technologies, you ask? According to Microsoft (https://www.microsoft.com/enable/at/), “Assistive technology products are specialty hardware and software products (such as screen readers and voice recognition products) that provide essential accessibility to computers for those with significant vision, hearing, dexterity and mobility, language and communication, or learning needs.”
So how do you qualify for the free upgrade?
