Figured I'd send the below along (sorry if this has been posted already)

Important bit:

-----
*Announcing braille support in Narrator.* We love getting feedback from our
visually-impaired Insiders and implementing features to support your needs. Go
here for steps on using braille with Narrator

.**

** There are coexistence issues with braille support and third party screen
readers. Until the documentation is available, we recommend that braille be
enabled for Narrator only on PCs that do not also have a third-party screen
reader configured to use a braille display.

Hello Windows Insider,

As you know, our engineers are continually drawing on feedback from
Insiders like you — and the work they’ve put into the latest Windows 10
Insider Preview* builds shows it.

These builds showcase an exceptionally large number of features inspired
directly through Insider feedback. They cover everything from gaming to
security, accessibility to multi-tasking. Check out a few highlights below
for PC and let us know what you think.

On another note, we'd like to thank you all for your incredible response to
our recent Windows Insider Program survey. The feedback you provided will
help us tailor the Insider Program to your specific needs and interests.
Congratulations to Peter H. of Sweden who won our draw for a $1,500 (USD)
Microsoft Store gift certificate for completing the survey.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build Highlights
As usual, you can go here for more details on all the latest Windows 10
Insider Preview builds for both PC and mobile
<https://click.email.microsoftemail.com/?qs=48bf6da8ea702dfa09554b90605b323f9fc03dec3945a8c56edd1b33185cbc6cba92bfd4186b712c8c238462865ad5e2be1d114b7ad4dafe>
.


   - *Do more at once with the new Compact Overlay window.* Keep watching a
   movie or video chat on one corner of your screen — even when switching apps
   to check email or browse the web. When an app window enters compact overlay
   mode, it’ll be shown above other windows so it won’t get blocked. Look for
   updates to the Movies & TV app and Skype Preview app to take advantage of
   this feature in the near future.

   - *A smart way to lock your PC.* Dynamic Lock automatically locks your
   Windows 10 PC when you’re not around, based on the proximity of your
   Bluetooth-paired phone. If your Bluetooth-paired phone is not found near
   your PC, Windows turns off the screen and locks the PC after 30 seconds.

   - *Announcing braille support in Narrator.* We love getting feedback
   from our visually-impaired Insiders and implementing features to support
   your needs. Go here for steps on using braille with Narrator
   <https://click.email.microsoftemail.com/?qs=48bf6da8ea702dfaaf60b09d68b2d0a75f178d025ec669580f3107b6a71106757827af7d8c87231efd51a4182557ec645a3d4969a446db4e>
   .**

   - *Xbox Gaming Features.* We’ve rolled out some awesome new features for
   gamers. For more details, go to this blog post on Xbox Wire
   <https://click.email.microsoftemail.com/?qs=48bf6da8ea702dfadb5579237087c9f8e904fb469f4b533ab6ac5f0803c37e215e1bc62b334148ca04e2bba3641929a6c586f84d4e5754c9>
   .

   - *Built-in Beam streaming.* Beam is the easiest and quickest way to
   stream gameplay — and it’s now part of Insider Preview builds.

   - *Introducing Collections in Feedback Hub.* A few months ago, we asked
   you what was one of your biggest pieces of feedback about the Feedback Hub.
   You said, “too many duplicate pieces of feedback!” So now, we’re happy to
   announce Collections which groups together feedback for similar problems
   and suggestions.



Info for IT Pros

   - *New Windows Insider Program features for business.* We’ll soon be
   introducing new features and functionality to better support the IT
   Professionals and business customers in our Insider community. Among the
   highlights: the option to participate in the Windows Insider Program with
   corporate credentials (rather than just your Microsoft account). This will
   also give you increased visibility of your feedback — especially on
   features that support your organization’s specific business needs. Plus,
   we’ll connect you to a robust community of IT experts with insights on the
   topics you care about most. And that’s just the beginning. For more
   information and to let us know what other activities you’d like to see
