Presentation: Meet Windows 10 Anniversary Update
" Presenter: Joseph Lee
In mid-2015, technology writer Mary Jo Foley caused a stir when she announced Microsoft was thinking about the successor to Threshold, or initial version of Windows 10. This successor, codenamed Redstone, or as known by the name Windows 10 Anniversary Update or Version 1607, brings exciting features, such as enhanced Cortana, revamped Action Center, Windows Subsystem for Linux, reorganized Start menu, Settings and other apps, and new possibilities through Edge extensions and more. To screen reader users, the most notable change is vastly improved Narrator with features such as scan mode, developer mode, improved responsiveness and so forth.
Join Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a contributor to NVDA screen reader project, as he gives you a backstage tour of what's new, changed, fixed and removed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Follow him along as he demonstrates running Bash on Windows, navigating the newly redesigned Start menu, demonstrates what's new in Narrator and his impressions of using third-party screen readers with the latest Windows 10 upgrade. Along the way he will talk about his experience of running Windows 10 and being a Windows Insider, and what screen reader developers must do to make Windows 10 support a great one for users.
