Windows 10 Build 15025 (10.0.15025.1000) info

Windows 10 insider build 15025 for PC brings fixes and improvements.

Update: Windows 10 Build 15025 for PC and Windows 10 Insider Preview build 15025 (rs_prerelease) for Windows 10 Mobile devices is now rolling out for Windows 10 users.

According to the Windows Insider team, they have discovered a bug that impacts their ability to release 32-bit (x86) version of Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. As a result, Microsoft is not releasing 32-bit PC build today.

However, Windows Insider team will release Windows 10 Insider preview build 15025 ISO by the end of the week and Insiders on 32-bit PCs will be able to update from the ISOs.

Announcing braille support in Narrator: Windows 10 Insider preview build 15025 brings braille(beta) support for Narrator. However, Insider team also warn that there are coexistence issues with braille support and third party screen readers. According to the Windows Insider team, braille is enabled for Narrator only on PCs that do not also have a third-party screen reader configured to use a braille display. In order to use braille with Narrator, you will need to do the following:

  • Ensure Narrator is running. Then go to Settings > Ease of Access (WIN + U) and under the Narrator settings, activate the “Download Braille” button. You will be prompted to install braille support.
  • Under Settings > Ease of Access, activate the “Enable braille” button and add a braille display. Note that USB and serial connections for the display are supported.
  • Under Settings > Ease of Access, choose the language and braille table you want to use.

Braille settings.

New mono audio option in Ease of Access settings: Visually impaired users use a screen reader application to read the PC screen content and information to them, and frequently use headphones or earbuds to hear the computer when in meetings or having conversations with others. When doing so, they generally use only one earbud to hear the PC in one ear so the other ear is free to hear conversations and sounds around them.

That can cause them to not hear sounds that may be directed to the other earbud. In order to change the sound to be mono mode and so all audio is directed to both ears, they used to need a physical earphone adapter. With Windows 10 Insider preview build 15025 you can now switch your audio to mono straight from the new Audio section under Settings > Ease of Access > Other options.

Introducing Collections in Feedback Hub:  Windows 10 Insider preview build 15025 includes Collections. A Collection groups together feedback for similar problems and suggestions into single items that bring together all the voices who expressed that sentiment in one place. The new Collections are now live in Feedback Hub starting with app version 1.1612.10251.0.

More night light improvements: The night light color temperature range has been extended to go down to very red (1200 K) and the entire range of the slider now works correctly.Night light improvements.
