Microsoft is rolling out another new Windows 10 Insider Preview build today, featuring yet more features and enhancements. Today's build in question is 15025, and is rolling out for Insiders in the Fast ring on PC. We're fast approaching the "feature-complete" stage of development now with the Creators Update, so don't be expecting any huge new changes in this release.
You'll also notice this build isn't for Mobile, making that two builds in a row in which Windows 10 Mobile is missing out. Microsoft says this is due to a blocking bug that they're still looking into.
Take Note: If you're an Insider using Windows 10 on a 32-bit machine, you won't be receiving this build today. There is a bug causing 32-bit installs to fail, therefore this build is not rolling out on that architecture. 64-bit users can proceed as normal.
Announcing braille support in Narrator: We love getting feedback from our visually-impaired Insiders and implementing features to support your needs. It's so important that we keep our diverse customers in mind as we co-create with you. Today, we are excited to announce braille support for Narrator . This experience is currently in beta.
New mono audio option in Ease of Access settings: Visually impaired users use a screen reader application to read the PC screen content and information to them, and frequently use headphones or earbuds to hear the computer when in meetings or having conversations with others. When doing so, they generally use only one earbud to hear the PC in one ear so the other ear is free to hear conversations and sounds around them. That can cause them to not hear sounds that may be directed to the other earbud. In order to change the sound to be mono mode and so all audio is directed to both ears, they used to need a physical earphone adapter. You can now switch your audio to mono straight from the new Audio section under Settings > Ease of Access > Other options.
Introducing Collections in Feedback Hub: A few months ago, we asked you what was one of your biggest pieces of feedback about the Feedback Hub. You said, "too many duplicate pieces of feedback!". We love working with you to create a better experience for everyone using the Feedback Hub, so today we are so happy to announce Collections. Collections are now live in Feedback Hub starting with app version 1.1612.10251.0. A Collection groups together feedback for similar problems and suggestions into single items that bring together all the voices who expressed that sentiment in one place.
More night light improvements: The night light color temperature range has been extended to go down to very red (1200 K) and the entire range of the slider now works correctly.
