Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 15025 through the Fast ring for PC and Mobile devices. The new test preview of the Creators Update includes a small number of features, improvements, and a slew of new bug fixes over the previous release.

Windows 10 build 15025, according to the software giant, adds braille support, improves the Night Light settings, and the Feedback Hub adds a few features called Collections to make it easier to view duplicated pieces of feedback, and more.

What’s new on Windows 10 build 15025

Narrator

In this new flight, Microsoft is finally adding braille support to Windows 10. Braille appeared in the Settings app in earlier builds, but it’s not until build 15025 that we actually see it working.

To enable the feature, you need to go to Settings > Ease of Access, click the Download Braille, and click the Enable braille button to activate. Microsoft also notes that USB and serial connections for the display are supported. Then simply choose the language and braille table you want to use.

Ease of Access also introduces mono audio to help impaired users to listen all the audio through one earbud. You can now switch your audio to mono straight from the new Audio section under Settings > Ease of Access > Other options.

Feedback Hub

On Windows 10 build 15025, there is a new version of the Feedback Hub with a new feature called Collections, which groups similar problems and suggestions together in a single item to improve the experience submitting and upvoting feedback.

Settings

In the Settings app, this new update of the Windows 10 Creators Update removes the Mixed Reality section, and 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.

In addition, app developers can now request to pin their primary tile, just like secondary tiles, allowing apps to highlight their tiles.

As you can see Windows 10 build 15025 is not a big update, but includes a number of welcome improvements. Microsoft also is aware of an issue impacting the ability to install this flight on computers running the 32-bit version of Windows 10, but because most users are running the 64-bit version they decided to ship the build anyway.
