Microsoft has been working on a new operating system called
Windows 10 X, and it’s destined for use on dual-screen devices
and even laptops. Microsoft is apparently looking to expand
Windows 10 X’s presence beyond the traditional laptop and
mobile use with a new feature called ‘Voice control’.
Windows 10 has built-in voice controls for some of its most
popular features, but the current implementation is
hit-or-miss. Voice recognition is mainstream when it comes to
mobile and smart devices, and it looks like Microsoft is also
joining the club with Windows 10 X.
It appears that Microsoft is working on a new voice control
feature for Windows 10 that would let you conquer tasks quickly
In Hyderabad, the capital of southern India’s Telangana state,
Microsoft is hiring Senior Software Engineer with strong C++
knowledge to work on Voice control feature for Windows 10 X.
As per the LinkedIn job post
spotted by us, Windows 10 X’s Voice control experience is based
on brand-new Assistive Technology (AT) tech and it will allow
users to enjoy and be productive on the 10X OS with their
“Since this is a new application the number of coding
challenges are numerous: leveraging cognitive services for
voice commanding and control, identifying interesting elements
within an application context as well as interacting with the
entire desktop, interacting in new ways with the 10X OS while
maintaining the security and integrity,” Microsoft noted.
Microsoft’s job post doesn’t go into much other detail, but
presumably, new voice control implementation will also improve
Cortana and digital assistant experience on Windows 10 X.
Microsoft has also been looking to staff up engineers to work
Windows 10X to the Internet of Things (IoT), suggesting
that the company is already looking to expand the OS presence
beyond the desktop. With IoT version of 10X, Microsoft plans to
build special-purpose devices in governmental, transportation,
and other sections.
