Will my assistive technology software work with the latest Windows and OSX operating systems?


With Microsoft and Apple pushing out regular operating system updates for their Windows and OSX platforms one of the most common questions we get here at iansyst is, will my software be compatible with the latest update?

When major updates are released we usually find that most software vendors are updating their software to work, but sometimes there can be a small period of time before that update is released so our recommendation is to check your software vendors website for the latest news before updating if you rely on your software.

As always at iansyst if you require any further help, or have any questions about whether you should upgrade, please just get in touch with us!
