Hi all!

I am a Windows insider, and I am using Narrator with Google Chrome browser in insider build 18290.

Narrator works just as well in Chrome, as JAWS or NVDA does.

It will come out in the Spring update.

Don't worry, I have every reason to believe they are very much

committed to accessibility. The transition to UIA was for very valid

reasons even though it created some uncomfortable moments, but that's

what happens for most paradigm shifts.

Let's all make liberal use of the feedback hub when things break for us.

All the best,

Felix
