Important information for people using Windows 7

Following the release of Dolphin ScreenReader 20, ScreenReader no longer supports the Windows 7 operating system. 

ScreenReader may continue to run and function on Windows 7. However, as the product is no longer tested on Windows 7, we regret the Dolphin team is not able to fix issues that occur on devices running this operating system.
