Windows 10 get a night mode and support for Braille with the new Build 15025
Microsoft has released a new Build (15025) on Windows 10 intended for testers, which adds so-called nightlight mode. In addition it is embedded and Braille support, although this is still a beta feature and it is under development.
With this feature blind users will be able to “read” text on the screen, but for this to be possible, need to have a special display compatible with this tactile system. Setting night lighting can reduce the levels of blue light, replacing it with warmer colors that will not interfere with the quality of your sleep.
Build 15025 also comes with numerous bug fixes, including addressing the problem in playing games. Also extensions in Edge browser will work properly.
Other changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
[GAMING] We fixed the issue where clicking on certain elements in desktop (Win32) games causes the game to minimize and cannot be restored.
Windows Insiders should no longer have trouble connecting to certain Google sites due to an implementation of a new security model being rolled out to further enhance user security.
Extensions in Microsoft Edge are back to working as expected.
App developers can now request to pin their primary tile, just like secondary tiles, allowing apps to highlight their awesome live tiles – see this blog post for more info.
Quicken 2017 should launch and working normally again.
Windows Insiders will no longer see a “Mixed Reality” entry on the main page of Settings.
We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced where the Network flyout would unexpectedly appear blank instead of listing available Wi-Fi networks.
We fixed an issue where the custom color picker in Color Settings might stop working when selecting new colors.
We fixed an issue where certain colors in the recent colors section of Colors Settings would unexpectedly not appear selected after being selected.
We fixed an issue where if you downloaded a theme from the Store, deleted it, then downloaded it again, it wouldn’t appear in Themes Settings.
We’ve improved the performance when using point erase to ease ink in Sketchpad.
We’ve updated the Windows Ink Workspace so it will now remember your most recently selected stencil (ruler or protractor) and keep that choice the next time you open Sketchpad.
We fixed an issue where, after upgrading, some Insiders were left with certain tiles that couldn’t be unpinned from Start. We also fixed an issue where pinning a tile might unexpectedly add it in the middle of an existing group of tiles.
We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders using PCs with certain older chipsets seeing colored boxes in the place of text and various other UI in UWPs apps.
We fixed an issue where desktop shortcuts pointing at URLs weren’t working for some Insiders.
We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to tab over to Other Users section on the login screen using only the keyboard.
We fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft Edge sometimes freezing for a short after using CTRL+C to copy selected text in the address bar.
We fixed an issue resulting in the shadows behind the set aside tabs in Microsoft Edge not being as dark as expected – the thumbnails should pop more now.
We fixed an issue with notification toast priority from recent flights where an alarm or skype call toast would not interrupt a reminder toast.
We fixed an issue where some captive portal Wi-Fi networks might fail to connect during OOBE, and if a captive portal network was using DNS hijacking to redirect to a secure site, the captive portal app would crash and you wouldn’t be able to clear the portal.
We fixed an issue where Yes/No voice commands in the Wi-Fi portion of OOBE weren’t working.
We fixed an issue resulting in the screen flashing and explorer crashing in a loop for some Insiders if they entered Safe Mode on recent builds.
We fixed an issue for devices with TPM chips on 15019 where the TPM was unexpectedly not able to start.
We fixed an issue where a window might appear to get “stuck” on the mouse when releasing it after dragging to resize it – requiring an extra click to let go.
We fixed an issue resulting in poor quality scaling of taskbar and task view thumbnail previews. We also fixed an issue where periodically when you moved your mouse to hover over a taskbar thumbnail preview, it might unexpectedly immediately dismiss.
