However what has caught the attention of millions is the feature of ‘Eye Control.’

As confirmed by the corporation, the Eye Control feature for PC will make the accessibility of users with disabilities to Windows 10 easier and efficient. It will empower disabled users to operate an on-screen keyboard, mouse, and text-to-speech experience on Window 10 by using their eyes only. The experience only needs an attuned eye tracker, just like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, and users can quickly unlock the access to the Windows operating system for conducting the tasks.

For setting up the Eye Control on your window 10, users need to purchase a Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, download and update to Tobii’s Core eye tracking hot fix release 2.10.11.6458 and run with the compatibility of your own profile. When the update for Windows Updates arrive, the new Tobii Eye Tracker HIDClass Driver will be found on Windows Update and will be installed automatically. Now connect the Tobii eye tracker with the PC and turn on Eye Control by going to Settings > Ease of Access > Other Options > Eye control.
