Windows 10 Free Assistive Technologies Upgrade Ending Soon

Microsoft offered Windows 10 as a free upgrade for some time after it's introduction, and in fact there is still a no-cost upgrade path if you have a legitimate Windows 7 or above key, or you can also visit the "assistive technologies" page and get an upgrade if you claim to have a need for such technologies.

The "assistive technologies" method was something Microsoft winked at, not requiring any sort of evidence that the person upgrading actually required any kind of special accommodation. 

Now, however, that option appears to be coming to an end in a couple of months, according to the site itself:
If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies. Please take advantage of this offer before it expires on December 31, 2017
As a last resort, you can use an un-activated copy of Windows 10 if you have it available. You will be limited in some functionality, like changing desktop backgrounds and you will seem some "nagging" to activate the product, but the operating system appears to be largely functional in this "limbo" state.
