Eye Control is Coming to Windows 10

Eye Control is Coming to Windows 10

Q. With all the concern about Microsoft Paint going away in the next Windows 10 update, I nearly missed that there's yet another update to Windows 10 coming out this year.

Back in May, Microsoft detailed a number of accessibility improvements coming to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Gleason has the neuromuscular disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and he wanted to use technology to overcome the limitations his condition imposed on him. And Microsoft rose to this challenge. "The Ability Eye Gaze team focused on developing a tool based on Steve's requests, and after three days of hacking, one of the projects stood out: the Eye Gaze Wheelchair".

Beck Mack & Oliver LLC Purchases 98 Shares of BP plc (NYSE:BP)
Global Financial Private Capital LLC bought a new position in shares of BP p.l.c. during the first quarter valued at $16,192,000. Raymond James Financial, Inc. reissued a "market perform" rating on shares of BP plc in a research report on Tuesday, July 25th.

In the future, you'll be able to control Windows 10 using your eyes. The feature requires an external eye-tracker, which Microsoft has delivered by collaborating with Tobii, a pioneer in gaming dedicated eye-trackers. "This unique solution allowed Steve to drive his wheelchair with only the movement of his eyes as he looked at controls on his Surface".

The Eye Gaze Wheelchair they created was the grand prize victor of the 2014 hackathon, and sparked new Microsoft research alongside Gleason's nonprofit organisation, Team Gleason, and ALS support group Evergreen ALSA. And thanks to the promising results obtained by prototyping new eye tracking scenarios, a team of engineers was able to bring eye tracking support to Windows 10.

Kandahar police spokesman Zia Durrani said he could only confirm the attack, which took place on Wednesday, but had no more details.

With this accessibility software and an eye tracking capable camera, like the Tobii 4C, users can "operate an onscreen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes".

Microsoft has incorporated eye tracking functionality into Windows 10, in order to make the operating system usable just by looking around the desktop as opposed to using a mouse.

USA probe into China trade practices may lead to sanctions
Beijing has repeatedly said its influence on North Korea is limited and that it is doing all it can. Administration officials say a formal announcement could be made within the next several days.

Eye Control is now available as a beta for Windows 10 Insiders, but the company is yet to announce its availability on mainstream Windows 10 builds. But now, Microsoft has developed this technology as an advanced accessibility feature.
