I would like to comment here, and I hope my comments are not out of line.
Firstly, to not update your screenreader, browser or operating system is inherently flawed thinking.

they are constantly being plugged, patched and fixed when they are
noticed, or insiders, beta testers and developers find or are notified
There are some arguments for not updating, and while they are valid,
they are not always practical in that you become susceptible to the
In the case of windows10, it is not too much of a steep learning curb
from windows7 and in many respects provides you with better performance

I appologise for my harsh words on the subject, but it behooves us as

we are not all competent computer operators, it is on us to insure that
someone with the requisite knowledge maintains our systems so that they
always run smoothly and efficiently.
