Microsoft has posted a new promotional video that showcases some of the new accessibility features that have been included in the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
The video, as posted on the official Windows YouTube channel, shows how the Narrator feature in the Anniversary Update has been improved to help Windows 10 users with visual disabilities navigate the OS. One thing the Windows 10 team did while working on Narrator is to set up the display so that it was completely black, which is how people who need Narrator would work with the OS. This allowed the dev team to have a better understanding of the issues facing people who require Narrator to use Windows 10.
Other accessibility features that are part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update include high-contrast screens, a screen reader, and search suggestions for when people are using the Edge browser. Microsoft is allowing Windows 7 and 8.1 PC owners who need accessibility features to upgrade to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for free for an unspecified amount of time.
