What is Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC?

juillet 06, 2023

Tobii Dynavox has transitioned to the Microsoft Windows Accessibility IoT Enterprise LTSC edition operating system on new Tobii Dynavox Windows-based speech devices. This version of Windows provides our customers with the familiar desktop experience with the addition of Enterprise-only features such as an extended 10-year support term and customization options for purpose-built communication devices. 

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC is almost identical to Windows 10 Professional. All Tobii Dynavox applications perform on this version of Windows in the exact same way as they do on Windows 10 Professional. The key differences are that Windows IoT Enterprise is supported by Microsoft for a much longer period than Windows 10 Professional and Windows 10 IoT LTSC does not include the Microsoft Store.

How do I get apps without the Microsoft Store? 

The Microsoft provisioned apps that are normally found in the Microsoft Store come pre-installed on Tobii Dynavox devices: Calculator, Calendar, Camera, Clock, Mail, Maps, Media Player, MS Edge, Movies & TV, Photos, Quick Assist, Video Editor, and Voice Recorder. These pre-installed Microsoft applications perform as normal and continue to update in the background even without the Microsoft Store. 
 

Many Third Party software titles are available to download and install directly from the manufacturer website instead of the Microsoft Store. If you can't find the software installer you need or you’re having trouble installing it, most manufacturers have support options on their website to assist you with this. They may be able to provide you with a non-store installer of their software upon request, even if you can't find it on their website. You can also contact Tobii Dynavox Technical Support to help you navigate.
