How PlayStation works to break down barriers to gaming

PS5 console accessibility features

Customize your PlayStation 5 console experience to perform to your needs and specifications. Quickly access accessibility features* from the control center.

*Some features may not be available in all countries or regions.

Display and Sound

The PS5 console offers a range of customizable display and sound features including Zoom, Color Correction, Text Size, Mono audio for headphones, plus more. 

Screen Reader

The PS5 console's Screen Reader can read aloud the text on screen and provide spoken guidance for operating the console.

Closed captions

Closed captions help you follow along with what is spoken on screen in videos, providing text for dialog and audio cues.


Customize your DualSense wireless controller experience by configuring the button assignments, vibration intensity and adaptive trigger effect intensity.


During gameplay, chat transcription converts the voice chat of other players to text while reading aloud the text you enter to other players. 

Accessibility Tags

Accessibility Tags allow game developers to provide detailed insight into the accessibility features supported in respective games.

If a game supports Accessibility Tags, players will see a list of accessibility features when browsing for titles across PlayStation Store for PS5, including visual and audio accessibility settings, DualSense controller options, difficulty settings and online communication features like chat transcription.

*AMPS is an industry-standard mounting screw pattern for attaching devices to equipment, including accessibility

Use a second controller for assistance

Enjoy games collaboratively or help a friend navigate a challenging section of a game using a second controller as an assist controller. Assign a second controller to one account as an assist controller and use two controllers to operate your PS5 console as if you were using a single controller. 

You can use an assist controller when your main controller is a DualSense or DualSense Edge wireless controller, or a PS5-supported third-party controller.*

*A DualSense Edge wireless controller cannot be used as an assist controller. Some of the DualSense features, such as motion sensor, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, will be automatically turned off when the controller is being used as an assist controller.
