Anniversary Update: Updates as of June 8, 2016 #nvdasr #a11y #wineyes #msftenable #WinTenOld


 

Hi all,

 

Some updates on Windows 10 Anniversary Update as of June 8, 2016:

 

General:

·         Version: It’ll be labeled as Windows 10 Version 1607 (called “Anniversary Update” in marketing literature).

·         Build number: Likely 14000 series.

·         Screen reader compatibility: JAWS 16.0.4350 or later, Window-Eyes 9.3 or later, NVDA 2015.3 or later, other screen readers declaring support for Windows 10.

·         Recommended screen reader versions: JAWS 17 or later (you might want to hold off until 18 enters beta testing phase), Window-Eyes 9.3 or later, NVDA 2016.2 or later (please hold off until 2016.3 at the earliest as yours truly and others are working on some fixes at the moment), screen readers known to work well under Windows 10 Version 1511 (Threshold 2) but may need to be updated.

 

Hardware requirements:

·         1 GHz or faster X86 or X64 CPU’s supporting Physical Address Extension (PAE), Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) version 2 and No Execute (NX) feature. These include later Intel Pentium 4 models, Pentium D, Core and others (including Core I series), AMD Athlon 64 (2003 version) and later, Phenom family, APU’s and FX processors (2011 and later).

·         Requires at least 2 GB of RAM for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

·         64-bit versions will require CPU’s supporting the following instructions: CMPXCHG16B (Compare and eXchange 128 bits), PREFETCHW (part of 3D Now! Instructions), LAHF/SAHF (Load/Store flags into a CPU register). Supported CPU’s include certain Pentium models, Core II, Core I3/I5/I7, AMD Phenom family, FX (Bulldozer family) and APU’s.

·         Windows Hello (new authentication technology) requires fingerprint reader or other biometric authentication device, a high-definition camera capable of iris scans.

·         Continuum (user interface mode switching) requires capable hardware such as two-in-one’s.

·         Speech recognition and Cortana voice mode requires a microphone.

·         Others are same as Windows 10 RTM/Version 1507/10240 and Version 1511/10586.

 

Screen reader specifics:

·         Narrator: New mobile voices (faster rate, better responsiveness), scan mode (similar to virtual cursor/browse mode in other screen readers), enhanced verbosity control, developer mode emulating what would happen if screen is turned off, use of item navigation (caps lock+left/right arrows) is a must in universal apps.

·         JAWS for Windows: One user reports that recent Insider build has fixed issues with JAWS 16 compatibility, 17 is stable for the most part, no toast notifications announced (unless help balloon announcement is enabled (please confirm)), no compatibility with Edge, touch cursor usage is a must for universal apps.

·         Window-Eyes: Stable in some situations, no compatibility with Edge.

·         NonVisual Desktop Access: No more “invalid entry” announcement as of build 14361, Edge support broken (more on this later), object navigation is a must for universal apps.

 

Microsoft Edge:

·         Extensions comes to Edge.

·         Websites can send notifications, which will be picked up by Action Center and shown as a toast.

·         Due to internal changes to Edge and its UIA attributes, no screen reader apart from Narrator has solid support (some Edge controls do work with NVDA, but browse mode cannot be used in Edge itself (NV Access is investigating this)).

·         Please do not use Edge as your primary browser yet.

 

Start menu:

·         Revised navigation strategy required (pressing TAB will move you between search field, pinned apps, all apps and navigation pane).

·         First letter navigation partially returns in all apps view.

 

Shell:

·         Ability to pin app windows so it’ll be shown across virtual desktops (options related to this has been added to context menu shown for apps in Task View).

·         Added a command to open time/calendar window (Windows+Alt+D), introduced in build 14361.

 

File Explorer:

·         Maximum length of file paths in NTFS volumes has been increased (no more 260 character limit for path).

 

Settings:

·         New navigation strategy required. Specifically, when you first open Settings app, search field will be focused, so press TAB to go to categories list. Press ENTER on categories, press TAB at least once to move to subcategories.

·         Insider Program is now housed under Settings/Update.

·         Control when updates will be installed as well as active hours.

·         Taskbar settings moved to Settings.

·         Certain Wi-Fi Sense features (sharing Wi-Fi passwords with contacts) has been removed.

·         Reorganized settings in Settings app, including System, Personalization and Update.

·         Press Control+E to move to search field.

 

Action Center:

·         More than four quick actions can be specified and configured from Settings/System/Notifications and Actions.

·         Quick actions is now a grid of checkboxes. Press Windows+A, then press TAB to go to quick actions list, and use the arrow keys to select the desired quick action.

 

Cortana:

·         Offers music recognition service.

·         Ability to use Cortana from lock screen without signing into MS account (for basic tasks).

·         Music playback (using Groove Pass).

·         Set timers.

·         More proactive in offering reminders.

·         Monitor battery level on mobile devices (mostly Windows 10 Mobile) and alert the pC user if mobile device battery is getting low.

·         Sync notifications between Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Mobile and Android.

 

Subsystem for Linux:

·         Run user-mode Ubuntu tools such as BASH (Bourne Again SHell), Git, Python and various tools.

·         Update packages with Advanced Packaging Tool (APT/apt-get).

·         Understands Linux kernel API from Linux 3.4.

·         Cannot run kernel-mode modules (yes, you cannot run Speakup).

·         Available in 64-bit version (for now).

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, thank you for the information.
I just have a couple of questions:

I assume it will be an automatic update if it is not disabled, right ?
If one let the update happen without waiting for screenreader update, will it hinder things a lot, or mainly just new functionalities, edge and universal apps ?

Hi,
Windows Update: yes, it is automatic. For those who've gone from Version
1507 (10240) to Version 1511 (10586) may well know what's going to happen -
you can keep using your favorite screen reader until it reboots.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Joseph,

Just curious if this update were specifically for the insider
build? I
just ran quickly an manual update to machine but it seems that no
progress or update for this one. Thanks.

Hi all,

Some updates on Windows 10 Anniversary Update as of June 8,
2016:

General:

톅ersion: It뭠l be labeled as Windows 10 Version 1607 (called
밃nniversary Update in marketing literature).

텯uild number: Likely 14000 series.

톁creen reader compatibility: JAWS 16.0.4350 or later,
Window-Eyes 9.3
or later, NVDA 2015.3 or later, other screen readers declaring
support
for Windows 10.

톀ecommended screen reader versions: JAWS 17 or later (you
might want
to hold off until 18 enters beta testing phase), Window-Eyes 9.3
or
later, NVDA 2016.2 or later (please hold off until 2016.3 at the
earliest as yours truly and others are working on some fixes at
the
moment), screen readers known to work well under Windows 10
Version
1511 (Threshold 2) but may need to be updated.

Hardware requirements:

1 GHz or faster X86 or X64 CPU뭩 supporting Physical Address
Extension (PAE), Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) version 2 and
No
Execute (NX) feature. These include later Intel Pentium 4
models,
Pentium D, Core and others (including Core I series), AMD Athlon
64
(2003 version) and later, Phenom family, APU뭩 and FX processors
(2011
and later).

톀equires at least 2 GB of RAM for both 32-bit and 64-bit
versions.

64-bit versions will require CPU뭩 supporting the following
instructions: CMPXCHG16B (Compare and eXchange 128 bits),
PREFETCHW
(part of 3D Now! Instructions), LAHF/SAHF (Load/Store flags into
a CPU
register). Supported CPU뭩 include certain Pentium models, Core
II,
Core I3/I5/I7, AMD Phenom family, FX (Bulldozer family) and
APU뭩.

톆indows Hello (new authentication technology) requires
fingerprint
reader or other biometric authentication device, a
high-definition
camera capable of iris scans.

텰ontinuum (user interface mode switching) requires capable
hardware
such as two-in-one뭩.

톁peech recognition and Cortana voice mode requires a
microphone.

텽thers are same as Windows 10 RTM/Version 1507/10240 and
Version
1511/10586.

Screen reader specifics:

텻arrator: New mobile voices (faster rate, better
responsiveness),
scan mode (similar to virtual cursor/browse mode in other screen
readers), enhanced verbosity control, developer mode emulating
what
would happen if screen is turned off, use of item navigation
(caps
lock+left/right arrows) is a must in universal apps.

텷AWS for Windows: One user reports that recent Insider build
has
fixed issues with JAWS 16 compatibility, 17 is stable for the
most
part, no toast notifications announced (unless help balloon
announcement is enabled (please confirm)), no compatibility with
Edge,
touch cursor usage is a must for universal apps.

톆indow-Eyes: Stable in some situations, no compatibility with
Edge.

텻onVisual Desktop Access: No more 밿nvalid entry announcement
as of
build 14361, Edge support broken (more on this later), object
navigation is a must for universal apps.

Microsoft Edge:

텲xtensions comes to Edge.

톆ebsites can send notifications, which will be picked up by
Action
Center and shown as a toast.

텱ue to internal changes to Edge and its UIA attributes, no
screen
reader apart from Narrator has solid support (some Edge controls
do
work with NVDA, but browse mode cannot be used in Edge itself
(NV
Access is investigating this)).

텾lease do not use Edge as your primary browser yet.

Start menu:

톀evised navigation strategy required (pressing TAB will move
you
between search field, pinned apps, all apps and navigation
pane).

텳irst letter navigation partially returns in all apps view.

Shell:

텮bility to pin app windows so it뭠l be shown across virtual
desktops
(options related to this has been added to context menu shown
for apps
in Task View).

텮dded a command to open time/calendar window (Windows+Alt+D),
introduced in build 14361.

File Explorer:

텺aximum length of file paths in NTFS volumes has been
increased (no
more 260 character limit for path).

Settings:

텻ew navigation strategy required. Specifically, when you
first open
Settings app, search field will be focused, so press TAB to go
to
categories list. Press ENTER on categories, press TAB at least
once to
move to subcategories.

텶nsider Program is now housed under Settings/Update.

텰ontrol when updates will be installed as well as active
hours.

톂askbar settings moved to Settings.

텰ertain Wi-Fi Sense features (sharing Wi-Fi passwords with
contacts)
has been removed.

톀eorganized settings in Settings app, including System,
Personalization and Update.

텾ress Control+E to move to search field.

Action Center:

텺ore than four quick actions can be specified and configured
from
Settings/System/Notifications and Actions.

텿uick actions is now a grid of checkboxes. Press Windows+A,
then
press TAB to go to quick actions list, and use the arrow keys to
select the desired quick action.

Cortana:

텽ffers music recognition service.

텮bility to use Cortana from lock screen without signing into
MS
account (for basic tasks).

텺usic playback (using Groove Pass).

톁et timers.

Hi,
I guess the flip side is: if your CPU doesn’t support Insider builds, then how come you can check for new builds? (in a way...).
The Pentium N series is powered by instructions that power various Intel Atom processors, so it'll work.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi all,

Some updates on Windows 10 Anniversary Update as of June 8,
2016:

General:

톅ersion: It뭠l be labeled as Windows 10 Version 1607 (called
밃nniversary Update in marketing literature).

텯uild number: Likely 14000 series.

톁creen reader compatibility: JAWS 16.0.4350 or later, Window-Eyes 9.3
or later, NVDA 2015.3 or later, other screen readers declaring support
for Windows 10.

톀ecommended screen reader versions: JAWS 17 or later (you might want
to hold off until 18 enters beta testing phase), Window-Eyes 9.3 or
later, NVDA 2016.2 or later (please hold off until 2016.3 at the
earliest as yours truly and others are working on some fixes at the
moment), screen readers known to work well under Windows 10 Version
1511 (Threshold 2) but may need to be updated.

Hardware requirements:

1 GHz or faster X86 or X64 CPU뭩 supporting Physical Address Extension
(PAE), Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) version 2 and No Execute (NX)
feature. These include later Intel Pentium 4 models, Pentium D, Core
and others (including Core I series), AMD Athlon
64
(2003 version) and later, Phenom family, APU뭩 and FX processors
(2011
and later).

톀equires at least 2 GB of RAM for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

64-bit versions will require CPU뭩 supporting the following
instructions: CMPXCHG16B (Compare and eXchange 128 bits), PREFETCHW
(part of 3D Now! Instructions), LAHF/SAHF (Load/Store flags into a CPU register).
Supported CPU뭩 include certain Pentium models, Core II, Core I3/I5/I7,
AMD Phenom family, FX (Bulldozer family) and APU뭩.

톆indows Hello (new authentication technology) requires fingerprint
reader or other biometric authentication device, a high-definition
camera capable of iris scans.

텰ontinuum (user interface mode switching) requires capable hardware
such as two-in-one뭩.

톁peech recognition and Cortana voice mode requires a microphone.

텽thers are same as Windows 10 RTM/Version 1507/10240 and Version
1511/10586.

Screen reader specifics:

텻arrator: New mobile voices (faster rate, better responsiveness), scan
mode (similar to virtual cursor/browse mode in other screen readers),
enhanced verbosity control, developer mode emulating what would happen
if screen is turned off, use of item navigation (caps
lock+left/right arrows) is a must in universal apps.

텷AWS for Windows: One user reports that recent Insider build has fixed
issues with JAWS 16 compatibility, 17 is stable for the most part, no
toast notifications announced (unless help balloon announcement is
enabled (please confirm)), no compatibility with Edge, touch cursor
usage is a must for universal apps.

톆indow-Eyes: Stable in some situations, no compatibility with Edge.

텻onVisual Desktop Access: No more 밿nvalid entry announcement as of
build 14361, Edge support broken (more on this later), object
navigation is a must for universal apps.

Microsoft Edge:

텲xtensions comes to Edge.

톆ebsites can send notifications, which will be picked up by Action
Center and shown as a toast.

텱ue to internal changes to Edge and its UIA attributes, no screen
reader apart from Narrator has solid support (some Edge controls do
work with NVDA, but browse mode cannot be used in Edge itself (NV
Access is investigating this)).

텾lease do not use Edge as your primary browser yet.

Start menu:

톀evised navigation strategy required (pressing TAB will move you
between search field, pinned apps, all apps and navigation pane).

텳irst letter navigation partially returns in all apps view.

Shell:

텮bility to pin app windows so it뭠l be shown across virtual desktops
(options related to this has been added to context menu shown for apps
in Task View).

텮dded a command to open time/calendar window (Windows+Alt+D),
introduced in build 14361.

File Explorer:

텺aximum length of file paths in NTFS volumes has been increased (no
more
260 character limit for path).

Settings:

텻ew navigation strategy required. Specifically, when you first open
Settings app, search field will be focused, so press TAB to go to
categories list. Press ENTER on categories, press TAB at least once
to move to subcategories.

텶nsider Program is now housed under Settings/Update.

텰ontrol when updates will be installed as well as active hours.

톂askbar settings moved to Settings.

텰ertain Wi-Fi Sense features (sharing Wi-Fi passwords with
contacts)
has been removed.

톀eorganized settings in Settings app, including System,
Personalization and Update.

텾ress Control+E to move to search field.

Action Center:

텺ore than four quick actions can be specified and configured from
Settings/System/Notifications and Actions.

텿uick actions is now a grid of checkboxes. Press Windows+A, then
press TAB to go to quick actions list, and use the arrow keys to
select the desired quick action.

Cortana:

텽ffers music recognition service.

텮bility to use Cortana from lock screen without signing into MS
account (for basic tasks).

텺usic playback (using Groove Pass).

톁et timers.

텺ore proactive in offering reminders.

텺onitor battery level on mobile devices (mostly Windows 10
Mobile)
and alert the pC user if mobile device battery is getting low.

톁ync notifications between Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Mobile and Android.

Subsystem for Linux:

톀un user-mode Ubuntu tools such as BASH (Bourne Again SHell), Git,
Python and various tools.

톃pdate packages with Advanced Packaging Tool (APT/apt-get).

톃nderstands Linux kernel API from Linux 3.4.

텰annot run kernel-mode modules (yes, you cannot run Speakup).

텮vailable in 64-bit version (for now).

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Christopher-Mark Gilland asked, "Start, Run, winver?"

I've always found, Windows Key, type the word "winver", hit enter to be the fastest way.  You can, of course, use Windows Key plus R (Start, Run) and type "winver" and hit enter.  Either one works.

This actually does sound pretty cool. I can't wait to see how Narrator
turns out. I'm always hoping that it'll become a fully-featured screen
reader some day.

Hi,
Which build are you using (I'm thinking 14361?)? You'll need to use Media Creation Tool to install the latest stable build (10586.318).

Finally, went through and successfully installed the insider preview build to my testing machine, and my current version was bumped to Version 1511 (OS Build 14342.1000) but, I just noticed in the details after hitting winver run command that this is an evaluation copy that may soon to expires this coming July 16. Not sure if this is just testing phase to consider, or I may still use my testing machine once its expiration reached on the given timeline. Kindly odd enough also that from the start menu I always heard invalid entry, I even tried to uninstall all my addons but, it keeps me hearing from the nvda of it. Though, I tested narrator and seemingly improved and the way it was response is fine except to the one that I've mentioned above.Also, I would like to add if you pressed or type any word from the search box like notepad I don't hear either the characters as you typing, though I check it that nvda plus 2 and 3 were toggle on.

This actually does sound pretty cool. I can't wait to see how Narrator turns out. I'm always hoping that it'll become a fully-featured screen reader some day.

Hi all,



Some updates on Windows 10 Anniversary Update as of
June 8, 2016:



General:

· Version: It’ll be labeled as Windows 10 Version 1607
(called “Anniversary Update” in marketing literature).

· Build number: Likely 14000 series.

· Screen reader compatibility: JAWS 16.0.4350 or
later, Window-Eyes 9.3 or later, NVDA 2015.3 or later, other
screen readers declaring support for Windows 10.

· Recommended screen reader versions: JAWS 17 or later
(you might want to hold off until 18 enters beta testing
phase), Window-Eyes 9.3 or later, NVDA 2016.2 or later (please
hold off until 2016.3 at the earliest as yours truly and
others are working on some fixes at the moment), screen
readers known to work well under Windows 10 Version 1511
(Threshold 2) but may need to be updated.



Hardware requirements:

· 1 GHz or faster X86 or X64 CPU’s supporting Physical
Address Extension (PAE), Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE)
version 2 and No Execute (NX) feature. These include later
Intel Pentium 4 models, Pentium D, Core and others (including
Core I series), AMD Athlon 64 (2003 version) and later, Phenom
family, APU’s and FX processors (2011 and later).

· Requires at least 2 GB of RAM for both 32-bit and
64-bit versions.

· 64-bit versions will require CPU’s supporting the
following instructions: CMPXCHG16B (Compare and eXchange 128
bits), PREFETCHW (part of 3D Now! Instructions), LAHF/SAHF
(Load/Store flags into a CPU register). Supported CPU’s
include certain Pentium models, Core II, Core I3/I5/I7, AMD
Phenom family, FX (Bulldozer family) and APU’s.

· Windows Hello (new authentication technology)
requires fingerprint reader or other biometric authentication
device, a high-definition camera capable of iris scans.

· Continuum (user interface mode switching) requires
capable hardware such as two-in-one’s.

· Speech recognition and Cortana voice mode requires a
microphone.

· Others are same as Windows 10 RTM/Version 1507/10240
and Version 1511/10586.



Screen reader specifics:

· Narrator: New mobile voices (faster rate, better
responsiveness), scan mode (similar to virtual cursor/browse
mode in other screen readers), enhanced verbosity control,
developer mode emulating what would happen if screen is turned
off, use of item navigation (caps lock+left/right arrows) is a
must in universal apps.

· JAWS for Windows: One user reports that recent
Insider build has fixed issues with JAWS 16 compatibility, 17
is stable for the most part, no toast notifications announced
(unless help balloon announcement is enabled (please
confirm)), no compatibility with Edge, touch cursor usage is a
must for universal apps.

· Window-Eyes: Stable in some situations, no
compatibility with Edge.

· NonVisual Desktop Access: No more “invalid entry”
announcement as of build 14361, Edge support broken (more on
this later), object navigation is a must for universal apps.



Microsoft Edge:

· Extensions comes to Edge.

· Websites can send notifications, which will be
picked up by Action Center and shown as a toast.

· Due to internal changes to Edge and its UIA
attributes, no screen reader apart from Narrator has solid
support (some Edge controls do work with NVDA, but browse mode
cannot be used in Edge itself (NV Access is investigating
this)).

· Please do not use Edge as your primary browser yet.



Start menu:

· Revised navigation strategy required (pressing TAB
will move you between search field, pinned apps, all apps and
navigation pane).

· First letter navigation partially returns in all
apps view.



Shell:

· Ability to pin app windows so it’ll be shown across
virtual desktops (options related to this has been added to
context menu shown for apps in Task View).

· Added a command to open time/calendar window
(Windows+Alt+D), introduced in build 14361.



File Explorer:

· Maximum length of file paths in NTFS volumes has
been increased (no more 260 character limit for path).



Settings:

· New navigation strategy required. Specifically, when
you first open Settings app, search field will be focused, so
press TAB to go to categories list. Press ENTER on categories,
press TAB at least once to move to subcategories.

· Insider Program is now housed under Settings/Update.

· Certain Wi-Fi Sense features (sharing Wi-Fi

· Set timers.

· More proactive in offering reminders.

Hi,
Expiration date: In the past, Microsoft released a build that extended this date. I'm sure Microsoft will do this by end of June or early July.
Invalid entry announcement: fixed in fast ring build 14361, although there is a problem (see Insiders subgroup thread on 14361 for details).
For others: if you are now running Insider builds, let us discuss accessibility of various builds on the Insiders subgroup. To subscribe, send an email to win10+insiders+subscribe@groups.io.
In the coming days, I'll send an email explaining how branches work, including how Insider flights go through testing phase.
Cheers,
Joseph
