You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    Narrator also has a navigation and reading mode called Scan Mode. Use it to get around Windows 10 using just the up and down arrows on your keyboard. You can also use a braille display to navigate your PC and read text.

    The Hear audio cues setting allows you to turn on or off hearing Narrator play a sound when you do things like perform a Narrator command or when suggestions are available.

  3. Problems with Windows 10 Photo Narration

    The problem is that the program will only allow about 10 seconds of the 30 second narration file to play. I want the entire narration file to play. Moving the start and end tabs does not allow the entire file to play.
    I would like suggestions as to what I can do to make the entire 30 second file play.

  5. Problems with Windows 10 Photo Narration

    I have created a video to which I wish to add music and narration. I have no problem adding the music. For the narration part, I used the Windows Voice Recorder. I selected the custom audio button in Windows 10 photo to upload the audio file just as I did
    with the music files. The problem is that the program will only allow a about 10 seconds of the 30 second narration file to play. I have attempted to drag the beginning and ending of the audio tabs to increase the duration of the narration as I did with the
    music files but that does not work with the narration file. I am using Windows 10 Home Version 1809. Does anyone have any suggestion?

    Thank you.
