It’s time to upgrade!

Dan our IT support worker is here once more to talk about a major change for the technology you may have on your computer so please read on to find out more.

On the 14th January, Microsoft ended its support for Windows 7, the operating system that has been around for the last ten years, so it’s time to upgrade! An operating system is the technology that allows you to access the internet, email and your speech/magnifier. If you are running windows seven and use things such as online banking, have personal emails stored on your laptop, or have sensitive information on your computer it’s essential that you upgrade to the newest operating system as soon as possible. If you don’t do this, your information could be exposed to hackers and your computer may stop working.

Daunted by the prospect of learning a new system, wondering how on earth you can do this yourself?

Well at KVIN we have the answer.

If you think you are running windows seven or just want us to check your laptop to make sure your on the latest windows operating system, pop in to our drop in sessions over at Dewsbury, Batley or Huddersfield and we can take a look for you, discuss your options and assist you in getting to grips with Windows 10 and you’ll be a wiz in no time!

You will be very surprised how easy to use Windows 10 now is, with in built software such as narrator which is a free piece of speech software and an in-built magnifier and an in-built smart assistant from Microsoft.

You’ll also be glad to know that you’ll still be able to use your favourite speech software or magnification software for example supernova, jaws, or NVDA just to name a few.

Alternatively feel free to give the office a call and we’ll see what we can do!
