The PlayStation 5 begins its global rollout on November 12, and as that date approaches we’re finding out more and more about Sony’s next-gen system. Now, Sony has given us some insight into the system’s in-build accessibility features, and how they’ll make the system easier to use for disabled players.
While the PS4 had text to speech, the PS5 also has a voice dictation system, which allows you to convert speech to text. There’s also a Screen Reader function, which lets users hear on-screen text that they might not be able to read, and deaf users will have the option of typing out text messages that will then be spoken out loud for other players in multiplayer.
These features will also support multiple languages, Sony has announced, so they’ll be part of the system’s global feature set.
