The upgraded solution for accessible input was also launched on the same day. The upgraded version of eye movement input is jointly developed by Sogou Input Method and Qixin Yiwei, a manufacturer of eye control communication aids. It adds a pinyin string retrieval method, which allows users with disabilities to quickly complete the "initial vowel word selection" process through eye rotation and staring at the computer. The input efficiency is increased by 50% compared to the previous version. On the basis of fully adapting screen reading software on the mobile end, the upgraded version of visually impaired input has achieved full process adaptation between the PC end and 90% of the screen reading software on the market. In response to the difficulties faced by visually impaired individuals in using desktop applications, such as inconvenience in operation and incompatibility with assistive software, Tencent Sogou Input Method has also collaborated with mainstream screen reading software manufacturers such as Sunshine Screen Reading and Qiedu Screen Reading to jointly launch the "Windows Application Accessibility Development Guide"
