Microsoft mods Windows 11 Narrator again with the latest beta

Microsoft has released a new version of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders who are registered in the beta channel. There is build 22631.1835 for those with new features rolling out and build 22621.1835 for those with new features by default. Both are minor releases, but build 22631.1835 adds a few tweaks to the Narrator experience, which Microsoft is constantly working on improving.

starting first Building 22631.1835There’s not much that’s changed here other than the narrator. Microsoft has introduced new natural voices in Chinese and Spanish (Spain and Mexico) that let Narrator users comfortably surf the web, read and write mail, and do more.

If you want to access these new sounds, tap Windows key + Ctrl+N Then, under Narrator Voice, select the plus button and add natural languages. You will see the new Chinese voices such as Microsoft Xiaoxiao and Microsoft Yunxi, the new Spanish voices such as Microsoft Alvaro and Microsoft Elvira. The new Spanish (Mexican) voices will be listed as Microsoft Jorge and Microsoft Dalia. You will have to download and then install the sounds and select them from the drop down menu.

This same design also makes it easier to control cell phone use when Wi-Fi is available but weak, using a new toggle added to Settings. Microsoft is not documenting any changes for build 22621.1835, which indicates that one may have fixed bugs reported by Windows Insiders.

Earlier in the week, Windows Insiders also got a new build for the Canary channel, though there aren’t any documented changes. Meanwhile, the Dev Channel got a newly redesigned File Explorer, along with other changes. If you are a dev channel looking for some steps on how to enable the new file explorer, we have a guide for that that can help to get the new features.
