    Changed Status to “Site Outreach”

  • The narrator team acknowledge the issue, and said they would try to fix this by the end of the year. I’m going to close this bug as the Narrator team isn’t going to be providing updates here, but hopefully that is an issue that should be going away in the Windows builds from the “Autumn of 2018” update of Windows 10.
