Microsoft Gives Windows Insiders Early Access to Eye Control Feature

Microsoft Gives Windows Insiders Early Access to Eye Control Feature”

Microsoft also plans to expand support to more eye trackers, including the Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus and I-series, said Sarkar.

This Windows 10 eye control feature was mentioned by Microsoft a couple of days ago, and the first look at it is being rolled out straight away. Called Eye Control, the all-new feature lets you navigate your computer desktop, open applications, and enjoy the full Windows 10 experience using nothing but the movement of your eyes.

Microsoft says Eye Control only supports the US English on-screen keyboard for now, although it's clear the US company is moving quickly with this feature. This is the ninth build of the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is slated to arrive later this year (likely in September).

The new build of Windows 10 is available already. The keyboard also boasts shape-writing, which can facilitate faster typing (allowing you to pause on the first and last characters of the word, but just glance at the letters in between, Swype-style). This unique solution allowed Steve to drive his wheelchair with only the movement of his eyes as he looked at controls on his Surface. Microsoft is planning to expand support for other devices in the future. This feature will use the default text-to-speech voices, which can be changed in Settings Time & Language Speech Text-to-speech. If you visit the flight settings page right now, you'll see that there is a new message saying that "Skip Ahead is now closed" (via Windows Central). A minor problem is that re-calibration of the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C is required when lighting conditions change too much. Unlike other previous versions of the OS, Windows 10 is a service that will be receiving regular updates aimed at not just fixing the usual bugs and errors, but also introducing new features to the OS as well. Windows 10 Preview Build 16257 that is highly expected to be released later today is rumored to bring this overhaul of the legacy color scheme of Windows Command Prompt.

Background preparation of the WDAG container has been optimised to improve its launch time.

Fixed an issue where if you switched to a new tab and back in Microsoft Edge, Narrator would start reading from the top of the page again, rather than remember where you had been on the page.
