Still, it makes no sense to upgrade from windows 7 to 8, or 8.1.

Windows 8 was a flop, like Vista was, but they came out with 8.1 and shortly after windows 10, and that is why there was a small market penetration.
Vista became pretty good after Microsoft's fixes, but most people went into 7 by then.
Not many, that's why it didn't last in the market; never had the penetration of Windows 7 or 10; and since mainstream support already ended over a year ago, and extended supports ends in 2023, you're better off just biting the bullet and going with Windows 10.
I know of no good reason why anybody would opt to upgrade to Windows 8 instead of going straight to 10.
If you are still using accessibility like Jaws or another screen-reader, you can still do it for free.

There are others who would disagree.
I would skip 8, it was not a good version.
