The new features in Build 16257 include a beta of Microsoft's eye-tracking feature, which the company introduced this week, improvements for Microsoft Edge, the Console and Windows Defender Application Guard, as well as support for 3D in Office applications.
The feature is now only available with select Tobii hardware and on the EN-US keyboard layout, but additional hardware vendors and layouts will be added in future updates.
As we mentioned yesterday, this feature will allow users to control text-to-speech, an on-screen mouse and keyboard, and several other common Windows tasks by tracking eye user movements via a connected camera device.
The new feature is now available in beta on the latest Windows 10 Insider build. "While not all ideas are winners, the thing that makes the hackathon great is that other ideas we kicked around had real potential - like eye tracking technology to help people with ALS and how Windows can bring it to more people".
Eye Control is a beta feature right now that adds another accessibility option to the Windows 10 operating system.
Lengthy delays at Australian airports after 'Islamic-inspired terrorism' plots
It added that it was not yet known whether the flight number was related to the alleged terror plot. He said the public needed to go about their business and give themselves more time at the airport .
The Edge browser has been adorned with the company's Acrylic material, a part of the company's new Fluent Design System that lends depth and transparency to various interface elements with the aim of providing a more modern and polished look. It gives us an outline of how it actually works with a breakdown of the new launchpad for accessing the tangential functions.
Eye Control Mouse: To select it, look at the mouse icon on the launch pad. At that time, I had no idea they would continue expanding access throughout all of Windows 10. That is what Tobii was initially developed for in fact. Microsoft is planning to release a tool soon that will allow Windows 10 testers to apply the new color scheme and a selection of alternatives. In this feature, users just have to type the first and the last letter of a word. This feature will use the default text-to-speech voices, which can be changed in Settings Time & Language Speech Text-to-speech.
Note: The Tobii 4C Eye has magnetic attach points on the back of the device.
For now, the new colors will not appear in the Windows Console default option. In a company blog post, Microsoft said that the old version of Paint would be available in the Windows Store as an optional download, even if it would no longer be included in future versions of Windows.
