It is learned from Sony’s official blog that the Auxiliary Features tab will be launched this week on the PlayStation Store on Sony’s PS5 console.
The Accessibility tab allows game developers to provide detailed information about a game’s support for accessibility features. When browsing games in the PlayStation Store Game Center on PS5, players can see a list of accessibility features by pressing the “triangle” button if the game they select supports the accessibility tab.
These accessibility features include visual and audio accessibility, as well as online communication features such as DualSense grip options, difficulty settings, and chat transcription.
The Accessibility tab will be available for PS5 and PS4 games on the PlayStation Store on PS5. If both PS5 and PS4 platform versions are available, players can compare the Accessibility tab for each version via the drop-down menu.
The following are examples of the more than 50 accessibility tabs available to game developers, grouped into six categories:
Visual accessibility features such as highlighted text, large text, color replacement, audio cues, and directional audio indicators. Audio features such as volume control, mono audio, screen readers, and visual cueing options. Captioning options, including caption size, caption clarity, and large captions Control options, including button remapping, joystick sensitivity, and no-button-holding, quick-press button lights Game options, such as difficulty settings, skippable puzzles, simplified quick time events and game speed.
