The Advanced Reading Technologies team at Microsoft seeks to improve the reading experience for all. We have been working closely with the team to explore how eye-tracking systems may be used to create a better reading experience. To accomplish this goal, we created an application which tracks eye movements and eye data to generate and visualize insights about a user’s reading session.
