Description

Gaming is an activity that should be enjoyable for everyone, but critical elements like chatting in social multiplayer experiences and basic navigation for some UI designs may pose challenges for some players. To help game developers address these gaps, Xbox has developed a set of free features that solve the top accessibility requests from players to make chat, audio, and low-vision scenarios better for any player. See demonstrations for how we have enabled accessible chat in our Party Chat system on Xbox and Windows. Learn how to use our off-the-shelf APIs that enable text to speech, speech to text, high-contrast support, intelligent stereo to mono downmix, closed captioning, and even speech synthesis to make your games more accessible.

 

[Note: Closed captioning will be added soon. Thanks for your patience.]
