Blizzard has revealed accessibility options that can be turned on for the upcoming game Diablo IV. Features include character highlighting, audio prompts, subtitles, and more.
Some of the accessibility options will include button remapping, a feature that allows you to customize input on both a controller and a mouse and keyboard. With the button remap, you’ll be able to enable a feature that will no longer require you to press and hold a button to cast a spell, and there will be a permanent target lock that ensures your skills and weapons hit the intended target.
In addition to button remapping, players will have the ability to change subtitles. Although subtitles are enabled by default, you can change the font color, scale, and background. There’s even a speech-to-text option. This allows you to speak into the microphone and the game will transcribe what you said in the chat.
There will also be a wide selection of visual features. You can change the size of the map to three options and enable audio prompts to help you find items. The sound hint feature can be changed, and if you want the sound hint to only work when a legendary item is nearby, you can change it to that. This feature will also work whenever a dead enemy drops loot.
Another accessibility feature you can use is a screen reader. This feature supports JAWS, NVDA, and other third-party screen readers. When enabled, players will have the text read aloud on the screen, with the ability to adjust the volume, speed, and type of voice reading. Finally, you’ll be able to highlight players, enemies, and items to make them easier to spot during combat.
