With the end of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer today for the general public, we want to remind customers who use assistive technologies that the deadline will not apply to you. As promised, we are rolling out a new webpage, starting today, to help customers who use assistive technologies to navigate the process and access the free upgrade offer extension for Windows 10 at: www.microsoft.com/accessibility/windows10upgrade.

With more than a billion people with disabilities in the world, we are excited for customers to experience the new accessibility features in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. These include improving the screen reading experience with Narrator, the accessibility of experiences and apps like Microsoft Edge, Mail and the Start menu, as well as better tools and resources for developers to build more accessible apps and experiences.

For more information about Windows accessibility, check out https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Accessibility/windows. And, as always, keep the feedback coming. It’s critically important to us as we keep working to give you a great experience.

We are not restricting the free upgrade offer to specific assistive technologies. If you use assistive technology on Windows, you are eligible for the free upgrade offer.

Sounds like you just have to enable sticky keys to qualify for a free upgrade...

There's no form or any agreement,
Anyone can download the EXE even if they are not someone who is disabled.
