Windows S is a competitor of Chrome OS, and only runs apps from the shop...
As far as I know, impaired people can freely upgrade to Windows 10...

No windows 10S will not run any third party software so nvda is out. I do
not understand though why they are doing this at all.
Seems counter intuitive to me.

Hi


Apart from the specs specified in the user manual you should be ok.


By the way if you are getting a tablet get the x86 version of Windows not the RT version which is found on some tablets and windows phones.


There is a new version of windows for schools i do not think it works on that version but if i remember right if it is upgraded to the full version of windows it will.

But some one else might know more. I would say at this point even if it was upgraded the windows 10 S version i would say know but others might know more on the list.


the link to the article is https://www.nvaccess.org/post/why-cant-nvda-run-on-windows-10-mobile-and-windows-10-s/

There is a article that explains it.

How well does NVDA work on a Windows based tablet? Are there any minimum specs for a tablet to work well with NVDA?
Thanks
