Text to Speech Accessibility Options in Chains of Domination
18/04/2021 alle 19:16
The patch 9.1 PTR is bringing a lot of changes to Shadowlands, along with the inclusion of new Text to Speech (TTS) accessibility options! Although it seems that many of the features aren't functioning just yet, the UI includes a variety of text to speech options for specific message channels, multiple voice options, and other options. For example, players can enable TTS for only raid leaders and control the speed at which messages are read.
It's worth pointing out however that accessing the accessibility options is not very accessible. The options are buried within the interface -> accessibility tabs of the game menu which require visually seeing the menu and manipulating the game cursor, whereas more thorough accessibility would include other navigation methods, such as using tab to cycle through interactive elements on a webpage. That said, the inclusion of these new Text to Speech options at least appears to be a step in the right direction toward making the game more accessible for everyone.
