Windows 11 build 22623.1037

Starting with this flight, Voice Access is now more flexible and supports interaction with interface controls having different names:

Names that contain numbers in them, for example, the Calculator app where you can now directly say “Click 5”. Names without any whitespaces between them, for example, in Excel, under the Insert tab, you can interact with UI controls like “PivotTable” and “PivotChart” directly by saying “click pivot table” or “click pivot chart.” Names with special characters in them, for example, items like “Bluetooth & devices” or “Dial–up.” You can now say, “click Bluetooth and devices” or “click dial hyphen up” and interact with these UI controls.

In addition, the experience now supports horizontal scrolling to the extreme left and right ends of a page, and you can perform a continuous scroll left and right. Furthermore, the company added support for interface controls such as spin controls, thumb control, and split buttons, enabling you to interact with these controls with a “click” command or by using number overlays. Commands that move the cursor in a text box now execute instantly, and this update also fixes issues with snapping commands that snap a window left or right. Some new commands for Voice Access include (action:say):

Close the voice access application: “Close voice access,” “Exit voice access,” or “Quit voice access.” Open a new application: “Show [application name],” for example, “Show Edge.” Close an application: “Exit/Quit [application name],” for example, “Exit Word,” “Quit Edge.” Show grid overlay on your screen: “Show window grid.” Pull up the command help list: “Show command list,” or “Show commands.” Release a held-down key: “Release.” Move cursor in a text box: “Move forward five characters,” “Go back two lines,” “Go to start of document,” “Move to beginning of line.” Select the desired no. of characters/lines: “Select forward/backward [count] characters/lines,” for example, “Select forward five characters.” Delete selected text or last dictated text: “Strike that.” Paste text in a text box: “Paste here,” “paste that.” Apply bold formatting to specific text: “Boldface [text],” for example, “boldface hello world.” Capitalize selected text or last dictated text: “Cap that.”

Search box style

Microsoft continues experimenting with different looks for the search box in the Taskbar, as previously introduced with build 25252, and in the latest flight, you will notice a search box with more rounded corners instead of a square design. The company says that Insiders that receive this update can change the design from the “Taskbar Items” settings on the Taskbar page.
