Does Tobii Dynavox still support Windows 7 for my iSeries Classic device?
Support for Win7 is coming to an end.After Microsoft announces a date, there will be no further security updates or technical assistance from Microsoft for Windows 7 whatsoever.
How will this affect you as an I-Series Classic user?It means that Tobii Dynavox in case of a repair, will have to install Windows 7 with the image we have access to. It could also mean that future updates to Tobii Dynavox software such as Communicator might require software updates that are no longer available for Windows 7. Tobii Dynavox will only be able to run limited test for Windows 7 compatibility for future Tobii Dynavox updates.
The I-Series Classic runs Windows 7. After Microsoft’s end date for Windows 7, you will not receive any more automatic Windows updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Windows Defender for download and in a second phase stop supplying antimalware signature updates for WD for Windows 7. Your computer will still work after support from Microsoft ends. Your Control Center software, Gaze Interactions, Communicator, etc will continue working too. However, please be aware that your I-Series Classic might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. We recommend you look for an alternative antivirus protection if you use Windows Defender
