Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs includes support for Eye Control feature, improvements to edge, console and input which makes the Windows 10 more approachable by people, so goodbye to keyboard and mouse. Including this, disabilities to operate an on-screen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes also makes it more accessible.
Eye Control is still in a beta-version and only works with the EN-US keyboard layout, but fortunately more keyboard layouts are coming soon.The feature works using the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, which can track where a person is looking on a screen.Microsoft has worked intimately with Tobbi to enable this support with existing devices likeTobiiDynavoxPCEye Mini, PCEye Plus, Eye Mobile Plus and I-series.
Another new attractive feature in the latest version is the Fluent Design for Microsoft. Fluent Design’s Acrylic material will emergein the top/titlebar section of the app browser. This Fluent Design looks beautiful in the latest build of Microsoft Edge. It’s not clear whether Microsoft will add other elements of the Fluent Design to the app browser, so we’ll have to wait for more time.
Windows 10 was built with different features and it makes easy to update regularly. Before this, Microsoft has released manyupdates, like November update, Anniversary Update and Creators Update. So it’s very clear that Microsoft is moving forward quickly in implementing new technologies.
Right now, Microsoft is only focused on Tobii hardware, but they are looking forward to work with other hardware makers.
