Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 11 Preview Build 22518 for Windows Insiders on the Dev Channel. As always, there are some improvements and updates. Groundbreaking are new tools for voice access tools and changes with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
Starting with Voice Access, a new addition to the Voice Typing feature on Windows 11. If you’re not familiar, Voice Typing was started with Windows 11 so that users can dictate words on the platform.
Voice Access is a new component that extends the capabilities. In particular, users can now use their voice for commands on the operating system and also control devices. For example, enter text and numbers in apps or control aspects of Windows 11. For example, open apps, select buttons and menu items.
“Voice access supports scenarios such as opening and switching between apps, surfing the Internet, and reading and composing e-mails. Voice access uses modern voice recognition on the device to accurately recognize language. “
According to Microsoft, the tool works with or without an internet connection, but is currently only available in US English. We hope the number of languages will increase as the tool exits the preview.
It’s worth checking out the Microsoft blog for Windows 11 Preview Build 22518 to see all of the available voice commands that Voice Access supports.
Microsoft made a big change to the Windows subsystem for Linux in October and brought the tool to the Microsoft Store. With the latest Windows 11 preview, users can now change the wsl.exe-install command to make the WSL app the default in the Microsoft Store.
