Microsoft tests new security and accessibility features for Windows 10

The Microsoft recently released a new preview with new to Windows 10. The build 18309 brings some tests that the company intends to launch in the first half of this year. Among the new features are security enhancements, a narration app, and accessibility enhancements.

An initial change is that the company has changed the look of when you ask to reset your Windows password already at the first login of your PC. With this, the system has the same design as when a person needs to recover their password using an app or web page.

The screen narration app now also allows you to download other voices even without having to download other language packs. Another interesting news is that now there is a shortcut to go through the main actions of the narrator in the app home and a shortcut that advances the recognition of a dictation text. The app has also gained more compatibility with PowerPoint presentations and is able to read the texts that are inserted into the slides if the file is in .ppt. There are still new types of reading control for browsing in Google Chrome.

In terms of accessibility as well, there are 11 new definitions of sizes and mouse speeds to adjust to people with motor difficulties. The patch still contains 22 bug fixes that the company is testing for this semester, and Microsoft has reported that there are 14 problems it already knows, but it’s still looking to sort out.

It is worth remembering that Microsoft has turned Windows into a program as a service. So, instead of always releasing a new version of the program, she started to invest in updating the current version. At the moment, Window 10 has six major updates, with two released last year.
