PlayStation 5 began global expansion on November 12, and as that day approaches, we are investigating more and more about Sony’s next-generation systems. Sony has provided some insight into the system’s built-in accessibility features and how they make the system easier to use for players with disabilities.
PS4 had a text-to-speech function, but PS5 also has a voice dictation system that can convert speech synthesis to text. It also has a screen reader feature, which may prevent users from hearing the text on the screen. Hearing impaired users can enter text messages to speak to other multiplayer players.
Sony has announced that these features will also support multiple languages, making them part of the system’s global feature set.
Button assignments and closed captioning features, as well as color correction, will also be available. You can program priority presets for common settings that are remembered in many supported games.
PlayStation 5 DualSense has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, but for players who have problems with these features, you can reduce or disable these features.
The PlayStation 5 pre-order quota is currently sold out, so if you haven’t ordered yet, you may have to wait until 2021.
