Windows Insider Preview Build 15025: What You Need to Know
Windows Insider Preview Build 15025 is the latest build of Windows 10 that was released to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring on February 1, 2017. This build is part of the second Creator's Update Bug Bash, which is a period of intensive testing and feedback collection for the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update.
This build introduces some new features and improvements for Windows 10 users, especially for those who use accessibility tools such as Narrator and Magnifier. Here are some of the highlights of this build:
Braille support in Narrator: This feature allows visually impaired users to read the PC screen content and information using a braille display. Users can enable braille support and add a braille display under Settings > Ease of Access > Narrator. They can also choose the language and braille table they want to use. This feature is currently in beta and may have some compatibility issues with third-party screen readers.
Mono audio option in Ease of Access settings: This feature allows users to switch their audio to mono mode, so that all sounds are directed to both ears. This is useful for users who use headphones or earbuds to hear the computer while also listening to conversations and sounds around them. Users can enable mono audio under Settings > Ease of Access > Other options.
Night light settings: This feature allows users to adjust the color temperature of their display to reduce eye strain and improve sleep quality at night. Users can enable night light and set a schedule under Settings > System > Display.
Collections improvements in Microsoft Edge: This feature allows users to organize and share web content such as articles, images, videos, and more using Collections in Microsoft Edge. Users can now drag and drop content into their collections, edit titles and notes, and export their collections to OneNote.
Pick up where you left off in Cortana: This feature allows users to resume their tasks across their devices using Cortana. Users can see suggestions from Cortana on what they were working on last, such as documents, websites, apps, and more. Users can also ask Cortana to remind them to resume a task later.
Windows Insider Preview Build 15025 also includes many bug fixes and performance improvements for Windows 10. However, it also has some known issues that may affect some users.
