  1. increase the notification/system tray icons to at least 32 pixels option, its important for tray indicators,

    increase the notification/system tray icons to at least 32 pixels option, its important for tray indicators, for example processor and disk real time indicator, upload, download, indicator, antivirus indicator, keyscrambler indicator, cups lock indicator, etc, for years we are still stuck n 16px for tray icons and nobody cares, its too small for some people who wears eye glasses, i think to increase system tray icons to 32 pixels will be something inventive for the new windows os, if it will be possible to make this changes on windows 10 so better,
    this is very important, for some people, even…

  2. Eye control issue on two monitor setup

    I think I've detected a bug in Eye Control and would like to report it.

    Have done the following test that I think proves it:

    I can access the eye control buttons OK, all of them, even write on the eye control keyboard just fine. But when I ask for a click or even precise mouse action, after positioning on a point on the screen, then it happens that the actual point of the event is another one, to the left of the original one.

    I measured the event point x coordinate and it is exactly one half of the…

  4. Resizable Eye Control Keyboard

    The Eye Control on screen keyboard is too big, it covers half of the screen. Would it be possible to add a setting to change the size of it? Or, ideally, can it detect where the text cursor is and automatically rearrange things so the text box is still visable? Thanks.

  5. Make built-in camera for Surface devices work with eye tracking

    Right now every laptop and tablet has a camera already, and Windows 10 has added compatibility with eye tracking capabilities. But we need to buy a second camera/device. Please make the cameras already installed in the Surface line (at a minimum) compatible with eye tracking so we don't need to buy and transport a second device.

  8. Further development of Windows Control to include LC Technologies

    With the Tobii Dynavox acquisition of Smartbox, are there plans to expand Eye Control support to other eye gazing systems that rely on Smartbox? And specifically to LC Technologies Eye Gaze Edge systems?

    Tobii says in their acquisition statement that they are not pursuing Windows Control. That leaves it to Microsoft to continue further development.

    My request is for Microsoft to expand Eye Control to additional Eye Gazing systems beyond Tobii's development and include systems from LC Technologies.

  9. Add dragging capabilities into your eye gaze mouse emulation feature.

    While the eye gaze mouse emulation is decent, there is no way to drag items across the screen. For power users of Tobii Dynavox, that is a key piece. They have it built in to the software to work on Windows 7 but have now discontinued the product for 10. I have several clients who would go with a 2 and 1 computer it had the dragging feature.

  10. April 2018 Eye Control doesn't work after Windows restart

    April 2018 Eye Control doesn't work after Windows restart. It works 3 out of 4 times on powerup after Windows shutdown. Old version worked and Tobii Dynavox Windows Control 2 works fine after update and regardless of restart or shutdown.

  11. Eye-tracker as an assistive technology for using a mouse or other pointing devices

    I know there are many people, like myself, for whom it's hard to move mouse. Especially on long distances, like from one edge of the screen to another. And you can't speed up pointer too much because it becomes too inaccurate. Or the software, including Windows native mouse support, doesn't let you.

    An eye tracker - used only to move the pointer with blinking (e.g. twice) - could be a great help here. And it didn't even need to be precise.

    I have a muscle wasting disease (DMD). Some people with similar diseases use only mouses, other styluses or touchpads.…

  12. More eye gaze apps for tablets!

    There are tons of apple apps but being an Android family, they are of no use to us. Can we get more options for eye gaze apps (games and learning) that aren't apple-based??

  13. Color control of OS

    with in windows xp and windows 7 there was UI control of the colors of the OS. I do not see this within windows 10 beyond the High Contrast setting. Which is limiting and prompting me to try and find a 3rd party solution to a feature that was within the previous OS,and allowed the control to be in the users hands. I'd like to see this option to be placed back so support can be made to those with sensitive eye sight.

  14. Can you add some arrow keys to the on screen keyboard? Sometimes using the eyetracker I just want to go back a couple of characters or line

    Can you add some arrow keys to the on screen keyboard? Sometimes using the eye tracker I just want to go back a couple of characters or lines to make an edit and using arrows keys would make it much easier and faster.

  15. Faster mouse pointing by combining eye and head tracking

    I noticed that with the current mouse pointer it's common to be off by about an inch even when the device is calibrated. There is a second mode offering a precision mouse pointer where I can move the mouse more precisely by looking at direction arrows. However, this is a fairly slow process requiring multiple steps.

    Instead, I would like to propose an improvement that allows for faster and more precise clicking. It works by combining both eye tracking and head tracking. The eye tracker is used for fast warps across the screen and get to you within an inch…

  16. Windows Head Control

    Hello Accessibility Team,

    We wanted to reach you since we had some feedback from our customers. I am writing on behalf on Glassouse Assistive Device team and would like to share a suggestion of ours.

    Our product is a hybrid glass-mouse using a 9-axis gyroscope to detect the head movements for dragging mouse cursors. Right now our new version of GlassOuse can be used with our highly adaptable switch control options - G-Switch Series to do the clicking actions or without them via dwell software.

    For right clicks, drag-n-drop, scroll etc. we suggest to use a 3rd party software on…

  19. Simplify web access bar for Tobii

    The current eye gaze system for internet access is very complicated for users who are developmentally delayed or inexperienced with mouse selections. There should be a more simplified way of moving around the internet. Picture symbols would be great!
