Preliminary screen reader advisories for Windows 10 October 2018 Update #ADVISORY #WinTenOld


 

Hi,

 

Note: this notice is subject to change based on articles published by vendors and as more feedback are sent by testers. This is especially the case for JAWS, as 2019 public beta is right around the corner.

 

Dear screen reader users, vendors, observers and others,

 

The following is considered a preliminary notice for screen reader advisories and compatibility for Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018 Update). As this is preliminary information, the below notice is subject to change.

 

Windows 10 Version 1809 is scheduled to hit the air in October. Notable highlights include cloud-based clipboard history and paste, AI-based way to prevent updates from being installed when you don’t want it to, dark mode in File Explorer, improved Storage Sense, an overhaul of Notepad, redesigned emoji panel, Your Phone and many others. For screen reader users, Narrator has seen a complete overhaul of keyboard commands, new UIA changes to make screen readers respond better and others.

 

Key features:

  • Copy and paste text and images across devices and view a history of clipboard copy operations.
  • Toast notification focus command has changed from Windows+V to Windows+Shift+V, as Windows+V will now be used for clipboard history.
  • Dark mode comes to File Explorer.
  • Redesigned emoji panel, including ability to change skin tones when searching for people emojis.
  • No more weird characters when pressing Control+Backspace from Notepad; now Notepad will delete previous word.
  • Pressing Control+B from Notepad will ask Bing to search highlighted text.
  • Ability to open and read files marked with Unix and Mac style line endings in Notepad.
  • When finding text in Notepad, find can wrap around to top of the file.
  • In Task Manager, one can view how much power a program is using.
  • In Registry Editor, one can cycle through subkeys in address bar by pressing up or down arrow keys.
  • Windows will remember fast startup toggle setting across upgrades.
  • Significant changes to Narrator and its commands, including elements list, find, new keyboard layout and others.
  • If using any program that requires use of microphones, Windows will ask for confirmation before the program gets a chance to use the microphone for the first time.
  • Your Phone: ability to synchronize web browsing history from iPhones and send and receive texts from Android devices.
  • Settings changes, including separating “Region and Language” into two subcategories.
  • Machine learning results will be used to postpone updates if Windows finds that you just left your seat for a little while.
  • Ability to copy and paste text in Windows Subsystem for Linux by pressing Control+Shift+C and Control+Shift+V.
  • Internal changes to UI Automation to make some screen readers respond better.
  • And many more.

 

Other platforms:

  • Xbox: avatars and other changes.
  • Server 2019: long-term servicing release.
  • Holographic/mixed reality: ability to view the “real world” through flashlight (powered by the camera on the headset).

 

Screen reader compatibility: any screen reader that supports Windows 10 Version 1709 or later will work. For best experience, use a screen reader build that supports at least one feature in Windows 10 Version 1709 or later. This is especially the case for users wishing to use Microsoft Edge and/or emoji panel and other features.

 

Compatible releases:

• Narrator: compatible.

• JAWS for Windows: 18.0 or later. Version 17.0 was reported to be working but cannot guarantee that it would be fully compatible with Version 1809.

• NonVisual Desktop Access: 2018.3 or later.

• Any screen reader declaring support for Windows 10 Version 1709.

 

Additional recommendations, requirements, and changes for optimal experience:

1. Support for Microsoft Edge and related technologies is now a must.

2. Support for Controlled Folder Access is strongly recommended for optimal screen reader updating experience, as without this, some screen reader update features will not work properly.

3. Support for announcing notifications from apps via UIA notification event is highly recommended.

4. Support for running on 64-bit ARM processors (directly or via emulation) is optional, but supporting this opens more possibilities.

5. A Windows Store version is an optional experience.

6. Support for changes introduced in UIA in Version 1809 is highly recommended.

7. As noted above, toast notification focus command is now Windows+Shift+V.

 

Things to be aware of:

 

JAWS:

• Audio ducking feature is currently broken (needs update).

• UIA notification event isn’t supported yet (this may change if JAWS 2019 ships with this enabled).

• Does not support certain key features in Version 1809, including emoji panel (needs update once 2019 public beta is released and if 2019 supports this feature).

 

NVDA:

  • Version 2018.3 includes support for UIA changes introduced in Version 1809. You may notice slightly better responsiveness when you move to a task while a CPU-intensive task is running. Work is under way to backport this to earlier Windows 10 releases.
  • Version 2018.3 fully supports redesigned emoji panel introduced in Version 1809, along with other features such as dictation, cloud clipboard history/paste, and hardware keyboard input suggestions.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

Dark mode lets controls other than the one you are interacting with fade to a dark background.

Hi,
Do you know if there will be a way to disable cloud-based clipboard if you don't want/need/feel comfortable with it?

Hi,
Yes, it can be done (Settings/System/Clipboard in Version 1809 provided
that: signed in via local account, and turned of syncing in that category).

Dear screen reader users, vendors, observers and others,

The following is considered a preliminary notice for screen reader
advisories and compatibility for Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018
Update). As this is preliminary information, the below notice is
subject to change.

Windows 10 Version 1809 is scheduled to hit the air in October.
Notable highlights include cloud-based clipboard history and paste,
AI-based way to prevent updates from being installed when you don't
want it to, dark mode in File Explorer, improved Storage Sense, an
overhaul of Notepad, redesigned emoji panel, Your Phone and many
others. For screen reader users, Narrator has seen a complete overhaul
of keyboard commands, new UIA changes to make screen readers respond
better and others.

Key features:

* Copy and paste text and images across devices and view a history of
clipboard copy operations.
* Toast notification focus command has changed from Windows+V to
Windows+Shift+V, as Windows+V will now be used for clipboard history.
* Dark mode comes to File Explorer.
* Redesigned emoji panel, including ability to change skin tones when
searching for people emojis.
* No more weird characters when pressing Control+Backspace from
Notepad; now Notepad will delete previous word.
* Pressing Control+B from Notepad will ask Bing to search highlighted
text.
* Ability to open and read files marked with Unix and Mac style line
endings in Notepad.
* When finding text in Notepad, find can wrap around to top of the file.
* In Task Manager, one can view how much power a program is using.
* In Registry Editor, one can cycle through subkeys in address bar by
pressing up or down arrow keys.
* Windows will remember fast startup toggle setting across upgrades.
* Significant changes to Narrator and its commands, including elements
list, find, new keyboard layout and others.
* If using any program that requires use of microphones, Windows will
ask for confirmation before the program gets a chance to use the
microphone for the first time.
* Your Phone: ability to synchronize web browsing history from iPhones
and send and receive texts from Android devices.
* Settings changes, including separating "Region and Language" into
two subcategories.
* Machine learning results will be used to postpone updates if Windows
finds that you just left your seat for a little while.
* Ability to copy and paste text in Windows Subsystem for Linux by
pressing Control+Shift+C and Control+Shift+V.
* Internal changes to UI Automation to make some screen readers
respond better.
* And many more.

Other platforms:

* Xbox: avatars and other changes.
* Server 2019: long-term servicing release.
* Holographic/mixed reality: ability to view the "real world" through
flashlight (powered by the camera on the headset).

Screen reader compatibility: any screen reader that supports Windows
10 Version 1709 or later will work. For best experience, use a screen
reader build that supports at least one feature in Windows 10 Version
1709 or later. This is especially the case for users wishing to use
Microsoft Edge and/or emoji panel and other features.

Compatible releases:

. Narrator: compatible.

. JAWS for Windows: 18.0 or later. Version 17.0 was reported to be
working but cannot guarantee that it would be fully compatible with
Version 1809.

. NonVisual Desktop Access: 2018.3 or later.

. Any screen reader declaring support for Windows 10 Version 1709.

Additional recommendations, requirements, and changes for optimal
experience:

1. Support for Microsoft Edge and related technologies is now a must.

2. Support for Controlled Folder Access is strongly recommended for
optimal screen reader updating experience, as without this, some
screen reader update features will not work properly.

3. Support for announcing notifications from apps via UIA notification
event is highly recommended.

4. Support for running on 64-bit ARM processors (directly or via
emulation) is optional, but supporting this opens more possibilities.

5. A Windows Store version is an optional experience.

6. Support for changes introduced in UIA in Version 1809 is highly
recommended.

7. As noted above, toast notification focus command is now
Windows+Shift+V.

Things to be aware of:

JAWS:

. Audio ducking feature is currently broken (needs update).

. UIA notification event isn't supported yet (this may change if JAWS
2019 ships with this enabled).

. Does not support certain key features in Version 1809, including
emoji panel (needs update once 2019 public beta is released and if
2019 supports this feature).

NVDA:

* Version 2018.3 includes support for UIA changes introduced in
Version 1809. You may notice slightly better responsiveness when you
move to a task while a CPU-intensive task is running. Work is under
way to backport this to earlier Windows 10 releases.
* Version 2018.3 fully supports redesigned emoji panel introduced in
Version 1809, along with other features such as dictation, cloud
clipboard history/paste, and hardware keyboard input suggestions.

Cheers,

Joseph


 

Hi,
Jeff Bishop and others at Microsoft should have an updated list somewhere.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

vendors and as more feedback are sent by testers. This is especially
the case for JAWS, as 2019 public beta is right around the corner.

Dear screen reader users, vendors, observers and others,

The following is considered a preliminary notice for screen reader
advisories and compatibility for Windows 10 Version 1809 (October 2018
Update). As this is preliminary information, the below notice is
subject to change.

Windows 10 Version 1809 is scheduled to hit the air in October.
Notable highlights include cloud-based clipboard history and paste,
AI-based way to prevent updates from being installed when you don�t
want it to, dark mode in File Explorer, improved Storage Sense, an
overhaul of Notepad, redesigned emoji panel, Your Phone and many
others. For screen reader users, Narrator has seen a complete overhaul
of keyboard commands, new UIA changes to make screen readers respond
better and others.

Key features:

* Copy and paste text and images across devices and view a history of
clipboard copy operations.
* Toast notification focus command has changed from Windows+V to
Windows+Shift+V, as Windows+V will now be used for clipboard history.
* Dark mode comes to File Explorer.
* Redesigned emoji panel, including ability to change skin tones when
searching for people emojis.
* No more weird characters when pressing Control+Backspace from
Notepad; now Notepad will delete previous word.
* Pressing Control+B from Notepad will ask Bing to search highlighted
text.
* Ability to open and read files marked with Unix and Mac style line
endings in Notepad.
* When finding text in Notepad, find can wrap around to top of the file.
* In Task Manager, one can view how much power a program is using.
* In Registry Editor, one can cycle through subkeys in address bar by
pressing up or down arrow keys.
* Windows will remember fast startup toggle setting across upgrades.
* Significant changes to Narrator and its commands, including elements
list, find, new keyboard layout and others.
* If using any program that requires use of microphones, Windows will
ask for confirmation before the program gets a chance to use the
microphone for the first time.
* Your Phone: ability to synchronize web browsing history from iPhones
and send and receive texts from Android devices.
* Settings changes, including separating �Region and Language� into
two subcategories.
* Machine learning results will be used to postpone updates if Windows
finds that you just left your seat for a little while.
* Ability to copy and paste text in Windows Subsystem for Linux by
pressing Control+Shift+C and Control+Shift+V.
* Internal changes to UI Automation to make some screen readers
respond better.
* And many more.

Other platforms:

* Xbox: avatars and other changes.
* Server 2019: long-term servicing release.
* Holographic/mixed reality: ability to view the �real world�
through
flashlight (powered by the camera on the headset).

Screen reader compatibility: any screen reader that supports Windows
10 Version 1709 or later will work. For best experience, use a screen
reader build that supports at least one feature in Windows 10 Version
1709 or later. This is especially the case for users wishing to use
Microsoft Edge and/or emoji panel and other features.

Compatible releases:

� Narrator: compatible.

� JAWS for Windows: 18.0 or later. Version 17.0 was reported to be
working but cannot guarantee that it would be fully compatible with
Version 1809.

� NonVisual Desktop Access: 2018.3 or later.

� Any screen reader declaring support for Windows 10 Version 1709.

Additional recommendations, requirements, and changes for optimal
experience:

1. Support for Microsoft Edge and related technologies is now a must.

2. Support for Controlled Folder Access is strongly recommended for
optimal screen reader updating experience, as without this, some
screen reader update features will not work properly.

3. Support for announcing notifications from apps via UIA notification
event is highly recommended.

4. Support for running on 64-bit ARM processors (directly or via

5. A Windows Store version is an optional experience.
