Text to Speech Feedback on the PS4

Text to Speech is a small accessibility feature that is intended to help visually impaired users interact with their console. When enabled, it will read out loud contextual information (menus and options) and on-screen text (messages, keyboard input...).

You can enable this option by going into Settings > Accessibility > Text to Speech and ticking the Enable Text to Speech checkbox.

You can adjust the default volume level and reading speed for Text to Speech to your liking.

Once done, tap on the Circle button to apply your new settings and return to the home screen.
