PlayStation 5 How To: Enable Screen Reader

Published

on

The PlayStation 5 Enable Screen Reader option is an important feature you may want to use on your new PS5 especially if the user has disabilities or is a bit young and doesn’t know how to read.

This feature; which is also known as a Text to Speech Screen Reader; basically allows your system to read the text on the screen, for better understanding.

However, just like other PS5 functions (Auto-Scroll Speed or Text Size), this option only works with some features and it works only while using the system’s UI (User Interface).

In other words, you won’t be able to see any changes while playing a video game, unless that title comes with a similar option.

Nevertheless, the Enable Screen Reader is extremely useful when navigating the system’s menu.

If you activate it, using the steps below, you’ll hear a voice reading the text on the screen.

Tye type of voice can be changed; as well as its volume and speed, so the user can easily understand what the screen displays at a specific moment.

So now that you know how it works, if you want to activate this option, simply follow the steps below.

Enabling PS5 Screen Reader

The first thing you’ll need to do is to start your console.

  • From the dashboard (your console’s main menu) navigate to Settings.
  • Next, go to Accessibility. You may remember this menu from your old PlayStation 4.
  • Now, go to Screen Reader.
  • Finally, go to Enable Screen Reader.

It is also worth mentioning that the same menu allows you to apply various settings such as Speech Speed, Voice Type, and Voice Volume.

You can test these and see which one fits your needs.

And that’s it.

Now you know how to enable the Screen Reader on PlayStation 5, and what this option does.

Published

By

Along with the option to increase the text size, the new PlayStation 5 also allows you to change Auto-Scroll Speed, and below I’ll explain how to do this.

But first, let’s see what is the Auto-Scroll Speed?

Simply put the Auto-Scroll Speed is an option that determines how fast or how slow the text automatically scrolls on your screen while using the PlayStation 5.

And this text can be seen in various places in the UI or the User Interface.

A good example would be the PlayStation Store. After you pick a game you’ll see various details about it. Such as a small summary, requirements, and more.

The text in the description tends to move automatically so you don’t have to scroll it manually using the thumbsticks.

The speed at which the text is moving from the bottom of the screen to the top is the Auto-Scroll Speed.

Now, since the reading speed of each user is different, you can adjust this setting following several easy steps.

The Ps5 option to change Auto-Scroll Speed is very useful especially if the user is younger, or for users with disabilities, so you may want to know how to adjust it once you set your brand new consoles.

Changing PS5 Auto-Scroll Speed

The first thing you’ll need to do is to start your console.

  • From the dashboard (your console’s main menu) navigate to Settings.
  • Next, go to Accessibility. You may remember this menu from your old PlayStation 4.
  • Now, go to Display; which is a new sub-menu that wasn’t available on PS4.
  • Finally, go to Auto-Scroll Speed.
  • Here you should see the following options: Very Slow, Slow, Normal, Fast.

Play around with these speeds and pick the one you like the most.

And that’s it!

Now you know how to adjust the Auto-Scroll Speed on PlayStation 5.

If you have purchased the new PlayStation 5, you may want to learn how to decrease Motion Blur, because this is an important feature that can improve your gaming experience.

The Motion Blur refers to screen movement and motion effects, and in some cases reducing it will help those who suffer from dizziness and eye strain.

If this happens to you, below you’ll find a step-by-step guide that will help you decrease the Motion Blur on PlayStation 5; however, keep in mind that this affects only the console’s UI.

In other words, even if you decrease it in the system’s settings it will not affect the in-game Motion Blur.

This means that if you wish to further decrease it, you have two additional options besides the one explained below.

First, you can check your TV’s settings as new models come with an option to decrease or increase Motion Blur.

And second, you can check if the video game you are playing, comes with this option.

You should be able to find this feature by accessing the game’s menu, then check the video settings.

Two very good examples of video games that include this option would be RAGE 2 and Marvel’s Avengers.

The latter had some serious issues at launch and a lot of players complained about it.
