Narrator advisory: as of build 16251, always on scan mode will be limited to Microsoft Edge #narrator #ADVISORY #wintendev


 

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

The following advisory just came out and serves as an erratum to my latest Windows 10 tutorial:

 

In Windows Insider build 16251 and later, Narrator’s always on scan mode will be limited to Microsoft Edge, which came about after Microsoft receiving many feedback about this feature from users.

 

Thus:

 

  • If you are using Edge, scan mode will be active.
  • If using other programs, you need to press Caps lock+Space to activate scan mode.
  • The scan mode intro dialog is gone.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
