The new version introduces a new Eye Control feature, created to improve accessibility by adding options to control Windows with eye movement, Microsoft Edge improvements, a color overhaul for the Windows Console, input and Windows Defender Application Guard improvements, and bug fixes.
Microsoft was inspired to create eye tracking technology for its products by former National Football League player Steve Gleason, who suffers from ALS. While previously users need have a physical mouse and keyboard for accomplishing the tasks on Window 10, the new "Eye Control" feature will enable the accessibility with virtual keypad and mouse, with eyes only. To type, users must look at the keyboard, then train their eyes on each letter to type.
Last week, the Windows Insider team introduced a new "Skip Ahead" for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring, allowing them to opt in to receive pre-release "Redstone 4" builds as well as inbox app updates from The Windows Store.
Initially, Microsoft will only support the US English language keyboard layout and further, the company will expand the area with time.
Eye Control Shape-Writing: An optional feature of the Eye Control keyboard which can be turned on from the keyboard settings via "Fn" key.
We've seen eye-tracking technology make PC gaming more immersive, and now Microsoft is building it right into Windows itself, so you can navigate and type with just your eyes.
Another change coming with the Fall Creators Update is an overhaul of the default colors that appear in the Windows Console.
Eye Control Keyboard: To select it, look at the keyboard icon on the launch pad. Participants who want to sign up are required to become a Windows Insider. Build number 16257 includes the eye-tracking software which you'll need to get Eye Control up and running on your Windows 10 device. The requirement for the eye tracker is the inclusion of Tobii Eye Tracker 4C on your Windows 10 running device.
Microsoft Corp. has released another test build for Windows 10 Creators Update, just a week after it released Build 16251. Eye Control now only works with select Tobii eye-tracking hardware, but Microsoft is planning on expanding support for other devices in the future.
