Microsoft Enables Eye Control in Windows 10

By | August 15, 2017

We heard about Microsoft’s eye tracking feature which was announced last week by Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadela for one of the Windows 10 versions. This feature makes people to enable or disable the system when needed. In order to bring this new feature to the native Windows 10 Operating System, Microsoft has to allow third party software to track the eyes. Or they might announce their own built-in eye tracker software. The same feature is available on many games to provide security. 

It seems Microsoft can not wait for more as the latest Insert preview build of Microsoft does support for beta version of Eye Control. It requires a compatible Tobii Eye Tracker 4C and the developers are currently working for a stable version of this latest features on Windows 10 Operating System.

Well, the Eye Control feature is still in its beta version and we don’t know the exact date when this feature will arrive for public. However, the company looks in a hurry as they are releasing its updates very quickly. So we would get to see this new inbuilt Eye Control in Windows 10 Operating System very soon, may be end the end of this month. Currently, Microsoft only offers US English Language to its Keyboard and for that reason, the company needs to add more support for different languages on the Keyboard layout so it can be widely used by the world’s people.

This new Eye Control feature will definitely bring a revolution in Microsoft’s business. By this new Eye Control feature, users will be able to type things without touching the display of the PC and it will work with your eyes only. We actually don’t know the actual way how this feature will work, but it is for sure that this Eye Control will bring hundreds of useful tasks to be done right with your eyes. It will also allows you to translate languages from your eyes to your own native language.

Apart from this, Microsoft is bringing a new feature called, “Shape Writing”, with the help of this new feature, users will be allowed to type words faster just by looking on the first and last letter of the sentence or word. You would even see a hint of the predicted words just like you see in mobile Keyboards. The Keyboard will act as the same and you can decide which one is correct and then can select it out from the predictions area. If you find the prediction is not compatible, you can swap it out and you will get another prediction to choose.

Before making this new Eye Control feature available for Windows 10, Microsoft has to work more on some hardware supported software such as Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus, and I-series on board which support this new Eye Control feature on the latest Windows 10 version. Just to bring this new Eye Control feature for real use, the company might start working with other hardware makers.

There is no confirmation when the company will release this new Eye Control feature on the Windows 10. However, we would get to see this feature in work sometime in this current year. Microsoft will announce more information regarding the new Windows 10 version in the coming days.
