How to Read by Sentence in Narrator in Windows 10

Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if you’re blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

Starting with Windows 10 build 18262, you can now read next, current and previous sentences in Narrator. Read by sentence is available with the keyboard and with touch. Sentence is also now a new Narrator view.

Move by sentence doesn’t yet work for Braille.
