Described: The voice control experience of Windows 10X, based on new assistive technologies (ATTs), helps users enjoy the productivity gains of the Windows 10X operating system through voice commands.
The new project presents challenges such as cognitive-based voice command and control, identifying interesting elements in the context of an application, and having a whole new interaction with the entire desktop, while maintaining security and integrity.
