Microsoft to Perform Eye Control Test for Windows 10 Users

Microsoft releases Windows 10 S to developers

Microsoft has mentioned in its blog post that the Eye Control feature requires a compatible eye tracker, like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C.

Microsoft has designed their Windows 10 Creators Update in a completely different way so that its update will not be limited to just bug fixes rather they can also include many more new features with every update. The first Tobii device to support Eye Control in Windows 10 is the Eye Tracker 4C, while other existing devices like the Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEye Plus, EyeMobile Plus and I-series will be supported soon, according to The Verge. This allows users to access the mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech features, as well as reposition the user interface to the opposite side of the screen. 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). Tobii, which targets gaming and research sectors as well as aiding accessibility, said testing was "currently being finalized" for Eye Control Compatibility in computers from Acer, Alienware, and MSi. We likely won't see any notable changes to the Redstone 4 branch until after the Fall Creators Update is released, and by then all Windows Insiders will begin receiving the same builds.

In fact, the Redmond-based company has already rolled out such updates over the past two years the OS has been around, among them the November Update, the Anniversary Update as well as the Creators Update - all of which have been coming in with new features as well as bug fixes and security updates.

Eye Control really is that simple.




While the company has retirement plans for the old Paint, its newer Paint 3D app (released earlier this year with the Windows 10 Creators Update) includes numerous same drawing, painting and visual tools - and as the name suggests, refreshes the app with 3-D drawing and modeling features.

Native eye tracking makes navigating around Microsoft's operating system and controlling some various functions possible for people who suffer from diseases the likes of ALS, MS, and others. Most likely, Eye Control is on the launch line for Redstone 4, which is slated to debut in the spring of 2018.

"It can help you to select, type and speak entirely hands-free".

Three years later, and after working closely with ALS groups the team is ready to bring eye-tracking technology to Windows 10. The command-line utility now supports full 24-bit RGB color, enabling new color schemes that improve legibility on today's displays, said Sarkar. Not surprisingly, it is challenging to get accustomed to it however, I know practice will make the use more efficient.
