Microsoft has released a software update to disable the use of the language ‘apraxiac’ in Windows 8.
The Microsoft spokesperson told The Register that the software update “changes the language from apraxiac to dsa.”
However, it is unclear whether Microsoft is only attempting to disable apraxia in Windows, or if it intends to completely remove the language.
This could mean that Windows 8 could disable any languages you don’t know.
We asked Microsoft if this meant that the ‘aproxi’ in ‘dpa’ would no longer be spoken in Windows.
The spokesperson replied: “Dpa and Dsa are the same word.
The use of these two words has been a tradition in the Microsoft Windows family for more than 20 years, and we continue to use them as the default for the ‘dpi’ and ‘dsa’ commands in Windows.”
Microsoft has yet to respond to our requests for comment.
The Register has contacted Microsoft for comment on this article.
The Microsoft spokeswoman said that the language change is only “in response to language differences” between the two languages, and that the company does not plan to remove it entirely.
However, Microsoft is now taking steps to ensure that users are able to access these two languages in Windows 9.
The spokeswoman said: “This change is part of our ongoing efforts to support the many people who use Microsoft’s Windows products on mobile devices.
In particular, we are continuing to support support the use in the Cortana virtual assistant.”
We have asked Microsoft to clarify the language switch in Windows 10.
Microsoft has also announced a new language-switching tool, Windows 10 Language-Switcher.
This tool allows you to switch languages between the default and alternate versions of Windows, such as Windows 8 and Windows 8 Extended.
It also allows you choose whether you want to use the Windows 7 and Windows 7 Extended user interface, or to switch between the Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro user interface.
The new tool will be available from the Microsoft Store on July 1, and it should be able to change languages between Windows 8, Windows 8 Home and Windows 10 in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
