Designed for you
We focused on your needs and input to create features that really make your life easier. Consistency throughout our portfolio, a great user experience and full control for you were just some of our most important goals.
Individual adjustments – Gaze enabled settings
All settings and features in the next generation Windows Control are gaze enabled. This means you have the ability to calibrate as well as change dwell time, users, languages, input methodology and much more by yourself. Fully gaze enabled settings means total control for you.
The calibration process has been redesigned and further improved. It now features a "pop the dot" calibration, which is even more engaging and fun. During the process, you can look away from the screen and then return and continue from where you stopped. No assistance is needed here, allowing you to take full control.
To quickly access all of those important eye tracking settings, you now have a controller window directly on the screen. The new controller window is always available on the screen and lets you start/pause eye tracking or pop up the track status to check your position. It also provides direct access to the settings for further adjustments.
Even more settings make it possible for you to define your best individual setup: Early eye gaze users can increase the taskbar width and reduce the number of tasks to only one, which simplifies selection enormously. Experienced users, on the other hand, can lower the dwell time or add more buttons to the taskbar in order to increase efficiency and speed. All adjustments can be done by yourself, which can help to avoid frustration and miscommunication.
The power of shortcuts
Utilize the full potential of Windows 10 with the brand-new Windows Control Shortcuts. All important Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 access features are gathered in the shortcuts panel for quick and full Windows control.
The interface is simple and clear, which makes it fast and comfortable to access the volume control, cut/copy and paste, access desktop, minimize/maximize and much more.
Besides the essential Windows functions, you can also launch additional programs from the shortcuts panel. You have direct access to Virtual Remote (IR control) Windows Speech Recognition (voice control), Cortana – and many more in the near future.
Once selected in the taskbar, the shortcut panel will fade into the screen and is only there when you need it. It fades out conveniently as soon as the task is selected or stays pinned for some tasks like volume up/down.
Within Windows Control, you now have the ability to control IR devices in your surroundings remotely. Choose your favorite TV program, let your music band play as loud as you want and enjoy toys like remote controlled cars. Virtual Remote is the software, integrated into Windows Control, that provides two pathways to setting up an IR connection:
- Pre-programmed remotes - Virtual Remote comes preprogrammed with many popular IR codes, helping you to simply create “Virtual Remotes” and take control of devices in your home or office. There is an extensive list of device brands to choose from and, once the brand is selected, all matching remotes are displayed, so that you can find the best one. Once chosen, the remote can still be edited afterwards.
- Manually programmed remotes - Here, the user begins with a pre-filled layout, which consists of un-programmed buttons. These buttons can now be programmed individually according to your preferences. After the initial programming, every button can still be edited and changed.
Switching between different remote controls is easy, so you always have direct access to programmed IR remotes.
