How to create a profile for your Access controller
Create and save up to 30 custom profiles for your Access controller.
From the home screen, go to Settings > Accessories.
Select Access controller > Profile Library.
Select Create Profile.
Follow the on-screen instructions to configure the Controller Orientation and Button Assignments.
Select one of the three slots, and then select Assign. If you select Assign without selecting a slot, your settings are saved on your PlayStation®5 console without being assigned to a slot in your controller.
The cross button, circle button, options button, and left stick (or directional buttons) are required to operate your PS5 console. If you save a profile without assigning these buttons and the stick, you need to use one more controller or the base profile to be able to use these functions.
You can set the centre button to Not Assigned if you’d like to rest your hand or wrist on it.
After you finish assigning buttons, you can put tags on the button caps so you can remember what each one does.
How to customize button presses for your Access controller
Create or edit a button assignment.
After you assign a button, select Assign Simultaneous Press or Button Toggle.
Assign Simultaneous Press to assign a second button to press simultaneously.
Turn on Button Toggle to have your button act like a caps lock key on a keyboard. By pressing the button once, it remains pressed down so you don’t have to do it physically.
The toggle button settings appear on the screen when you press the toggle button.
How to customize stick input for your Access controller
You can customize the sensitivity and deadzone of the analogue stick. Stick sensitivity determines how fast or slow your movements are when you move the stick. The deadzone is the range that you can move the stick before it’s recognized as an input.
Adjust the stick sensitivity to speed up or slow down your character’s movement or view.
Set the deadzone to have finer control over your character’s movement or view.
From the Profile Library, select a profile.
Select Edit > Stick sensitivity/deadzone.
From the menu that appears, select what you would like to adjust.
A) Sensitivity Setting Adjust the sensitivity of your stick movement by moving this slider. Move the slider to the left to decrease sensitivity, and move it to the right to increase sensitivity.
B) Deadzone Adjust the range of the stick movement where input isn’t recognized by moving this slider to the left or right. Move this slider to the left to decrease deadzone, so your game responds to smaller movements of your stick. Move the slider to the right to increase the deadzone, so your game responds only when you make bigger movements.
C) Playtest Check what your current setting is like during gameplay by tilting the stick to the left or right.
D) Adjusted input The movement on this scale shows your current sensitivity setting. Decrease the stick sensitivity for slower movement on the scale, and increase for faster movement. If your stick input is within the deadzone, the scale doesn’t move.
E) Controller input Unrelated to stick sensitivity, this slider shows you how far you’re tilting the stick. Your deadzone setting appears in black on the slider.
If you're experiencing unexpected button inputs, try reviewing the in-game controller settings in case they clash with your controller profile.
