Eye Control makes Windows 10 more accessible by empowering people with disabilities to operate an onscreen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes.

Support is coming soon for other Tobii devices such as Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus, and I-series.

The feature is now in the beta testing stage for the so-called Windows 10 Insider Preview Build, which is available for select users.

When you have enabled Eye Control, the launchpad will appear on the screen and provides access to options like mouse, keyboard, text-to-speech and reposition the user interface to the opposite side of the screen.

The feature is now in its beta testing stage for the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build.

The new default colors will modernize the look of the Windows Console and make it more congruent with other terminal experiences, such as the integrated terminal in VSCode. A few visual improvements have been made to the Edge browser in line with Microsoft's new Fluent Design language. Demonstrating the new feature could prove hard as there are not now applications that use the new colors.

Windows 10 Eye Control doesn't actually mean that you could just look at things in your PC screen and things begin to happen.

The new Windows 10 Preview has just been announced for all supported PCs and with it, users of the OS will enjoy a bunch of new features and improvements to the current features already at their disposal. At the moment the only such compatible device is a hardware manufactured by Tobii. It will also feature predictive text. Tobii, which targets the gaming and research sectors as well as aiding accessibility, said testing was "currently being finalized" for Eye Control compatibility in computers from Acer, Alienware and MSi.

Improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard container launch times.

Microsoft got the idea of embedding eye-tracking capabilities into Windows 10 from its first employee hackathon - One Week - in 2014. If you visit the flight settings page right now, you'll see that there is a new message saying that "Skip Ahead is now closed" (via Windows Central). The command-line utility now supports full 24-bit RGB color, enabling new color schemes that improve legibility on today's displays, said Sarkar.
