Windows 10 build 14951 is now available for Fast Ring Insiders, bringing a series of new features and improvements to the OS. This build continues the trend set by previous builds, and further refines the customization experience for precision touchpad, brings Inking in Photos, simplifies the camera interface and more.

Speaking of improvements, build 14951 brings significant upgrades to Narrator, including fixes to continuous reading on webpages. Also, the tool now clearly indicates when is it exiting.

This build includes a number of improvements to Narrator including multiple fixes to continuous reading when used in tables and on web pages, a fix for the Caps Lock + W reading experience so dialogs and other elements are read correctly again, and a fix so that reading hint text does not interrupt the reading of information by Narrator but comes after the main information is read. And Narrator now properly indicates when it is exiting.

It appears that Microsoft is determined to take Narrator to a new level. The previous Redstone 2 builds brought a series of interesting improvements for the tool. Build 14946 updated Narrator’s reading order for Windows 10 apps that display an app bar on the bottom of the app, so that the content of the page is read before the content of the app bar.

Window 10 build 14942 introduced form field navigation to Narrator. Form Fields are available on Narrator’s Search and Select feature by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Enter.
